The shortest street in the world - Ebenezer Place, Scotland
Ebenezer Place, Wick, Caithness, Scotland, is accredited as the world's shortest street, holding a seat in the Guinness Book of Records for a 2.06 meter length. This street hosts a single address: the entrance door of No.1 Bistro, which is part of the Mackays Hotel, built in 1883.
Until 2006, the former record holder for the world's shortest street was Elgin Street, in Bacup, Lancashire, UK, with 5.

The narrowest street in the world - Spreuerhofstraße, Germany
Spreuerhofstraße is the narrowest street in the world, located in Reutlingen, Baden Wurttemberg, from Germany. The width of this street varies from 31 centimeters, at its narrowest point up to 50 centimeters.

The most inclined street in the world - Baldwin Street, New Zealand
Located in a quiet suburban area of Dunedin, in southern New Zealand, Baldwin Street has the reputation of being the steepest street in the world.
The short and right, about 350 meters long, Baldwin Street starts from Linsday Creek, up to Signal Hill. The lower parts of the street have a moderate inclination, but the high portions of this street are much steeper and covered with concrete.
At its maximum tilt point, Baldwin Street reaches about 1: 2.86, or 19 degrees. In other words, for every 2.86 meters advanced horizontally, the road rises one meter.

The world's sinuous road - Lombard Street, San Francisco
Lombard Street is considered by many to be the most intriguing road in the world, due to a very sinuous portion, located on the Russian Hill, between the streets of Hyde and Leavenworth. The piece of road measures only 400 meters in length between these two points and the imposed speed limit is only 8 km/h.

The most complicated road transshipment in the world - Judge Harry Pregerson Intersection, Los Angeles
The Road Crossing Point Judge Harry Pregerson is located in Los Angeles, California, and is one of the most complex junction intersections in the US and the world. It allows inputs and exits from and across all directions with “layers” of roads and bridges that make up a very complicated network, although they are meant to streamline traffic between and along I-105 and I-110 interstate highways.

The longest national highway - Highway 1, Australia
Australian Highway 1 is a network of roads across the Australian continent that unites all the state capitals in the area. With a total length of 14,500 kilometers, A1 is the longest national highway in the world, followed by the 11,000-kilometer Trans-Siberian Motorway and the Trans-Canadian Highway with a total length of 8,030 km.
Some sections of the highway are very isolated, such as the Eyre highway region, which crosses the Nullarbor Plain, and the North Sea Highway, which approaches the Northwest Coastline.

The world's largest roundabout - Putrajaya, Malaysia
The main reason why people do not realize this is huge circle is due to the size -it has a circumference of about 3.4 kilometers. The oval road that surrounds the “round” (this is actually a hill on which several buildings are found) is called Persian Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah.

The largest street in the world - 9 de Julio - Buenos Aires, Argentina
With a breadth of new lanes we also get landscaped gardens between road directions, making July 9th the widest avenue in the world.
However, the “halt” in the middle of the route offers a unique perspective on the grandeur of the boulevard, but also of the whole city. The urban road goes far in both directions, uniting the important sections of the great metropolis.

The longest street in the world - Yonge, Ontario, Canada
This distinction belongs to Yonge Streets, a major artery that connects Lake Ontario and Lake Simcoe, both in the Canadian province of Ontario. Yongese Street stretches over the breathtaking distance of 1,896 kilometers.

The world's most dizzying roundabout - The Magic Row, Swindon, UK
The Magic Roundabout in Swindon, England, was built in 1972. Its name comes from a popular television series for children called the Magic Rond. The place was voted the most frightening British intersection.
