Where exactly would you build it?
I feel Almere should have a connection with the N247.

One of the best dividing lines for everywhere in Planet Earth is going between Spain to Morocco for extremely close geographic proximity yet they each are a solid endless polar opposite version of each other. Imagine if there is a bridge on the Strait Of Gibraltarís narrowest point 8.9 miles/14.3km to cross these independent territories of sovereignty. Airplane ride between Seville Andalusia to Fes Morocco is only 40 minutes. Such dramatic change of lands all of a sudden. Idealistic if there is a realistically plausible method to ride a bus between each major access point. Or drive a car, use a bicycle, or even walk across the extra thin maritime separating them. http://storage0.dms.mpinteractiv.ro/...ibraltar-1.jpg

Spain: Castles To Enter, Safe Barrios, Motherland to those Colonial Outposts of the Americas from Mexico to Argentina(Approximate 19 of those), Spanish language(Latinized wording, Basic yet equally vibrant music), Soft, Then Rude, Much further consistent Architectural buildings around(Although, there is just enough in Morocco upon discovery), Only 30ís Older in the Workforce or even in Public usually, Debit Card Machines Are Functioning At Literally Every Corner

Morocco: Falafel, Hookah, Floating Bazaar Parties, Middle East, Arabic(Writing, Deep Dramatic Spiritual Music), Rough, Then Friendly, High Rises(At Least in Casablanca), Nightlife, Affordable Luxury Hotels, Reputation, Ubiquitous Crystallized Chandelier Antique Stores(No other International country that I have went to they are ever that common!), Souq Stores, Abundant Young People Everywhere, None At A Taxi Cab To Pay Outside Of Cash With Sporadic Handling Of Alternatives At Other Venues

Can you believe they are that epic unique exotic alien neighbors on immediate emerging horizons!

Russia is building a bridge to Crimea, it be both a road and rail bridge.
With it Russia has no intention of giving up the Crimea anytime soon.

There is a reason why there is no road through the Darien Gap, connecting the land masses of North and South America through what is already a land bridge. Livestock quarantine. North American stockmen do not want South American cattle wandering up here.

I think it has more to do with the cocaine smuggling coming from South America.
