“Why change the route of pedestrians and cyclists,” questions architects Tiago Barros and Jorge Pereira, when we could introduce a high-speed car ramp instead? I say we start construction right away!

Ok, I admit, as a driver a high-speed car ramp is interesting—ok, downright exciting. It offers a unique alternative to traditional bridges or crosswalks.
A high-speed car ramp would allow free passage for cyclists and pedestrians. Although it would entail more gas expenditure, it would also be highly entertaining as well as a sure tourist draw for Lisbon.
