the world's most spectacular roads

 

Tuen Mun Road is a very congested highway located in Hong Kong. It links Tuen Mun and Tsuen Wan. Local folkore says it’s haunted by the ghosts of those who have been killed while traveling it. It's one of the Top#18 Haunted Roads in the world.

The road is 19.4 km (12.1 mi) long. It’s asphalted. It was built in 1977 whilst Britain still governed Hong Kong. According to the local folklore, the ghosts appear in the middle of traffic, sending cars veering out of control. Supposedly ghosts of previous crashes appear in the middle of the road, causing drivers to swerve to avoid them–and thus causing more crashes. Hundreds of crashes have occurred here in the past 35 years. 

Since 1978 there have been hundreds of accidents and many of them with fatal consequences. Some fatalities were attributed to the poor road design while others swear seeing spectral figures that distract drivers. This is one of the first highways in the country and many of the crashes are caused by the use of bad materials in the construction and the geography of the zone, which forced to build narrow lanes. In 2003, a bus had a crrash and 21 people were killed. Some people say the spirits of them walk wandering around the area.
