I think it would be nice to have a 'space highway' or something like that, where you could take the highway to get to your destination faster. The highway could be like a set of 'tech 2' jumpgates.

The highway could be made so that it can only be accessed from a few systems and only goes to and from high sec. It would cost more, but you would get to different places faster. And you could bypass certain trouble systems, like Jita, by taking the highway.

The highway would be a tollway of course, and charge you based on the size of your ship.

Jita is a problem, but this is not something to remedy the problem with Jita, I was thinking of something that would allow someone to go from one empire to another easily, so if I am in Caldari space and I need to grab something that a friend contracted me to pick up, I could pay a toll and go grab it faster, intead of waiting few hours (based on the ship im using) unable to do nothing

With WTZ now around. Paying someone to do it for you is just as good. Not sure it is really needed.

What if your friend just gave you a BS in Jita and you were in Rens? You operate in a system near Rens, and the ship would be very helpful, but it would also take you several hours to go get it and return, several hours who you may as well find something else to do. Im saying a trade highway between high-sec space, also it could be made so that freighters can use it (at probably the highest cost), so then trade would happen faster.

Once upon a time in the past their was a series of jumps that would take you across High sec. But CCP got rid of it to ease up lag in Jita end result you ended up with 4-5 hubs. Lore-wise it makes sense... Why build a means for other races whom you have a long-standing grudge with a quick way to invade your space. AKA the space highway was nerfed.
