Pan-Euran Highway

The Pan-Euran Highway is a transportation megaproject in the Euran continent that initially aimed to build a series of highways, railways, and supporting roads to link the nations of Nouvelle Alexandrie (then, called Alduria), Antakia, Constancia, Raspur, and the Suren Confederacy. Construction of portions of the Pan-Euran Highway began in earnest in Alduria and Constancia in 1684 AN, financed by a fund created by the governments of Alduria and Constancia to jointly finance their respective portions of the project while final terms were achieved with the Thraci Confederation and the Suren Confederacy to build their own connecting portions to the highway.

The Pan-Euran Highway will pass through many diverse climates and ecological types, ranging from dense jungles to arid deserts. This has offered plenty of political, engineering, and environmental challenges to the consortium of Euran nations in its design and construction, with the likelihood of some areas being fully passable only during certain seasons.

In 1692 AN, Nouvelle Alexandrie announced that it had completed the expansion of highways and railways in the Region of Alduria, including their portion of the highway all the way up to the connection and border crossing facilities that would then connect to the portion of the highway that would cross the Thraci State of Antakia and connect to Constancia.

In 1694 AN, the territorial expansion of the Thraci Confederation into Razjania, a part of the Euran Green that Nouvelle Alexandrie and Constancia hoped to seize and split between themselves, led to a breakdown of diplomatic relations and even talks of war between the Thraci Confederation and the rest of its Euran partners.

As of 1694 AN, the governments of Constancia, Nouvelle Alexandrie, and the Suren Confederacy have agreed to create the Euran Economic Union and committed to the construction of the Pan-Euran Highway in the historic First Fontainebleau Accords. The new organization aims to further cooperation and economic integration, marking the Pan-Euran Highway as its first and key project to realize this goal. The design of a new route is underway, avoiding the Thraci State of Antakia entirely and presenting even greater engineering and construction challenges for the future of the project.
