The highways of Buenos Aires

Although they were born as great solutions to traffic problems in the city, are they a real solution?

As we are
Those of us who are 30 years old or younger are more than used to traveling on urban highways. Panamericana, Acceso Oeste, May 25, are just some of the urban highways of the megacity that is Buenos Aires. However, the highways are relatively new. Av. Gral. Paz was the first highway, which functions as a boundary between the Federal Capital and the province of Buenos Aires.  Then a small section of the Ricchieri highway was added, but it was not until the 1970s that a large-scale plan for the construction of highways was carried out.  Perito Moreno and May 25 were part of the plan devised by Engineer Guillermo Laura and carried out by the Mayor of the dictatorship, Osvaldo Cacciatore. With the end of the dictatorship, the plans remained unfinished and it was from the 90's that new accesses were made to the north, west, the Buenos Aires- La Plata highway, Ezeiza-Cañuelas, among others. Today the riverside highway, called Paseo del Bajo, is under construction. Although they were born as great solutions to traffic problems in the city, are they a real solution?
