Neo-Tokyo Highway 26 is an elevated highway stretching from Neo-Tokyo to an abrupt end at the crater created by Akira's destruction of the original Tokyo in 1992[1]. While well maintained closer to Neo-Tokyo[2], more distant sections have fallen into disuse and disrepair[3].

While racing here with Shotaro Kaneda, and other members of the Capsule gang[4], Tetsuo Shima is involved in a accident with the escaped Esper, Takashi[5].

Sections of the highway further from Neo-Tokyo appear to have been demolished by the time Akira is released from facility containing him[6][7].
