I don’t think urban motorways are good for cities. They divert far less traffic away from the city compared to the quantity of new local car journeys they encourage. Urban motorways either operate as large car parks like the M50/M25 or else (if built to a sufficient capacity for freeflow) they have a huge knock on effect on local traffic feeding the back bone. Consequences: pollution road deaths more atomised unpleasant city.
