Here, I would say, one of the most important intersections in Mexico City. This is because it connects the two main business/comercial/financial avenues of the capital: Reforma and Insurgentes. At this point of the avenues the situation is as follows:
– Reforma has 3 outside car lanes plus 2 inside car lanes for each way. Next to each of the inside car lanes, there is a cycle path.
– Insurgentes has three car lanes for each way and in the middle a BRT system. Plus, due to the Covid-19, there is a new pop-up bike lane, therefore at this point you would see a BRT, two car lanes and the pop-up bikelane for each way.
The intersection is rather complicated and dangerous, there have been several incidents along the years, and although the Ministry of Mobility has worked on this intersection, I use it everyday to go to work and there is still room for improvement.
