This is a tangent, but it's a linguistic one. In most of the
English-speaking world, a parkway is a class of road. Usually they're
associated with nice landscaping, but the term also sometimes refers
to more unremarkable limited-access highways. I assume that Lieven is
thinking of what would be called a "greenway" or perhaps a "linear
park" in North America.
