Great works are massive projects in SimCity (2013) that require workers, lots of materials, and simoleons. They may only be built on areas known as great work sites, the locations of which aren't customizable.
The player can work together with other cities in the region to help ease the burden in their city and the finished project will benefit everyone in the region or just the surrounding cities. It can take up to several in-game months to complete a great work depending on the circumstances under which it is built.
Great works only work, function, or provide to cities connected to it via the highway.
