They built a road ( The G50 ) that is 1200 miles long and includes the worlds highest bridges 1/2 kilometre high! In fact 9 of them, they have built from the 100 miles of express way roads they had in 1989 to 60,000 miles now!
The big advantage they have is they do not have tree huggers. Should your house be in the way then they give you a new apartment nearby and demolish your old place. They can do this because there is no freehold, all land belongs to the State.

The HS2 railway project would be finished and old hat by now.
