Big plans for Asian Highways
I have just been reading about new plans for road improvements accross Asia. They sound interesting...
"One of the world's most ambitious road maps was approved in Shanghai yesterday when China, Japan and South Korea agreed plans for an 87,500-mile network of motorways, bridges and ferry routes connecting Asia and Europe.
Beginning with Asian Highway One, which will link Tokyo to Istanbul, it aims to create a modern version of the Silk Road, the camel route by which the occident and orient once traded with one another."
Now if only they get rid of the paper chase aswell. I wonder how long before we can make use of "the new silk road"
