Highway Tzar: The Longest Highway Never Created by Man

One day you will be able to drive from New York to London by car. Most people will think it might be by an underwater tunnel in the Atlantic ocean. Russian Railways president Vladimir Yakunin has an idea to branch the Bering Sea to connect Russia with Alaska.  I think the economical benefits would be in the favor of China. The transportation of cheap goods would now flow on trucks to North America easier. Politics would play a big role in changing the bitter climate in Russia.
The shortest distance between mainland Russia and mainland Alaska is approximately 88 kilometers (55 miles), according to the Alaska Public Lands Information Centers.

A theoretical drive (as fancifully calculated by CNN) from London to Alaska via Moscow might cover about 12,978 kilometers (8,064 miles).
