Nice story in today’s New York Times about a project in Madrid, Spain with some similarities to the Atlanta BeltLine. Madrid Rio park is a massive highway burial project is also creating new parks, public spaces, bike trails and light rail transit.
From the article: “The park here, called Madrid Río, has largely been finished. More than six miles long, it transforms a formerly neglected area in the middle of Spain’s capital. Its creation, in four years, atop a complex network of tunnels dug to bury an intrusive highway, also rejuvenates a long-lost stretch of the Manzanares River, and in so doing knits together neighborhoods that the highway had cut off from the city center.”
