Since the twenties many hypotheses for the construction of a by-pass network for the city of Turin had been suggested, a system designed to make car traffic faster and smooth-flowing. Abandoning the idea of an urban motorway across the historic city centre, the sixties with their economic boom and mass motorization saw the need for a ring-road around Turin increasing. However, it was only towards the end of the 1960s that the local government began its construction, which was completed in 1973 just during the oil crisis. The route of the ring-road followed the plans advanced before and after WW2, but against expectations the system turned out to facilitate local circulation rather than long distance traffic.
