Motorways through residential areas must be tunneled.
Every street that was interrupted by the highway must have a square or park surrounded by architecture.
By giving the tunnel a length from "Zwijnaarde" to beyond the "Gentbrugse Meersen", this series of squares and parks ends in two large nature reserves.
State and prosperity supporting architectural and urban planning ideas form the basis of cultural flourishing. An era that does not decide and act accordingly can and will not flourish.
Highways have helped to shape Europe. Europe is therefore decisive for the continued existence of highways through residential areas and urban green areas.
