    Circular bridge in Shanghai

    New round-about circular bridge in Shanghai:

    Here.

    Notice the generous set-backs and use of escalators.

    Built by Agenda 21 funds, of course. Interesting, thanks. I like this scene and the architectural mix:

    it is beautiful. No way commie planning can accomplish something something like that. Oh wait...
    But seriously, great way to connect round-a-bout intersections. Might be useful in a place like Vegas.

    It seems like it'd be a good idea at any major intersection, not just round-a-bouts. Of course that'd be pretty cost prohibitive.

    I was thinking full round style with access to all corners, not just the up and over.
    Besides, they could put some slot machines on it and pay for themselves.
