This video features world's most unusual interchanges from any metrics—such as design, driving experience, project costs, historic values and many more..
Youtube Channel: Our Tweets: Facebook page: Tumblr: Google+ page: 10. Gravely Hill Interchange Also called 'Spaghetti Juction', its is one of earliest stack interchange in the world as it opened in 1972. It is located in Birmingham, England.
9. Gate Tower Building Located in Osaka, Japan; it is the only elevated interchange that goes into buildings. It happens due to landlord refused to gave up land, hence the an agreement archived with such design.
8. Judge Harry Pregerson Interchange Found in Los Angeles, USA; it is one of a few five-level stack interchanges existed in America. What makes this one so special since it also integrated with metro line and bus transit station right in the middle.
7. Nanpu Bridge Interchange Located right in the middle of Shanghai, it's unique circular design is a smart way to integrate 3 highways while elevating traffic into a very high bridge at the same time.
6. Porta Maggiore Road that go around this historic monument give drivers hurrendous experience with trams and train railways cross exist every 20 feet.
5. Springfield Interchange Being most busiest interchange in USA, it also host two interchange in one place—one for regular highways, another for HOV. It costs 676 million USD which makes it the most expensive intersection in USA (maybe even world).
4. Oyamazaki Interchange Can be found in Osaka, Japan. This tentacles junction makes driver go rounds few times before exit the interchange. Another crazy fact is two unnecessary branch which leads to same destination.
3. Arc de Triomphe Roundabout Being Paris famous landmarks, it also serve 12 roads by its wide roundabout. The traffic atmosphere would trigger question if you are still in Europe.
2. Yan'an Interchange This is the only 6 level stack interchange and the highest stack number on the planet. It joints two elevated motorways while pedestrian overpass and local crossroads uninterrupted.
1. Magic Roundabout Located in Swindon, England; it contains five small roundabouts on each entrance of roads. Its design may look insane but the it works in dispersing traffic into bigger area and accident rate statistic is fine too.

WSDOT will build the state’s first Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) at Interstate 5 and State Route 510 in Lacey. DDI’s are a proven way to move more people and reduce the potential for collisions by reducing conflict points. This project is scheduled to begin in the 2018 construction season. Obviously, there are more than ten inventions from Soviet Union as well as Russian Empire era. Subscribe us: ▶ YouTube Channel: ▶ Our Tweets: ▶ Facebook page: ▶ Tumblr: ▶ Google+ page: Here are ten great Soviet Union engineering facts: 10. VA-111 Shkval (ВА-111 «Шквал») introduced in 1970s, it is the first torpedo to use supercavitation which helps it to cruise at speed of 230 mph (370 km h). 9. Orbita (орбита) First ever national satellite television system in the world by utilizing Mulniya satellites. Successfully tested in 1962 using Orbita satellite. However, it was full operational in 1967. 8. Nuclear-powered icebreaker (Атомный ледокол) The best kind of icebreaker. Effectively better than diesel counterpart due to lightweight. USSR Russia are the only place produced it. 7. Antonov An-225 Mriya (Антонов Ан-225 Мрія) The longest and the heaviest airplane ever made. Initially built to piggyback Buran, Soviet answers to USA's space shuttle. However, Buran remains a prototype and now after USSR ended, this 6 turbofan engine use for carrying oversize payloads around the world. 5. Sputnik 1(Спутник-1) First ever artificial satellite. Launched from Boikonur Cosmodrome into low Earth orbit on October 4th, 1957. This success launch created panic in USA called 'Sputnik Crisis' which also triggered Space Race. 4. Vostok 1(Восток-1) Another event that panicked USA and its allies. Soviet managed to send its astronaut into space: Yuri Gagarin on Vostok-1 on 12th April 1961. 3. RD series rocket engine (Ракетный Двигатель) Developed during 1960s, multi-staged rocket burning system beat any US-made in terms of energy efficiency. Due to this fact, after USSR, few engine models such as RD-170 and RD-180 are used in many NASA rocket such as Atlas. 2. Ilizarov apparatus (Компрессионно-дистракционный аппарат) used in orthopedic surgery to lengthen or reshape limb bones. In 1971, Ilizarov Center was purposely established for orthopedic and become the world largest orthopedic medical research center. 1. Ostankino Tower (Останкинская телебашня) In 1960s, Soviet government found themselves in need of broadcasting system in the middle of Moscow. Since the nearest mountain hill is 300 miles away, they decided to construct 1, 772 feet (540. 1 m) high television and observation tower in Ostankino. The tower became the tallest tower in the world between 1967 to 1975. CC BY attributions: tuning-drive, Серёга Сучков, yolkhere, RussianMarshal?
