sensational network

This urban infrastructure was matched by bold new railway stations – Gare du Nord and Gare de L’Est – the opulent Paris Opéra, new schools, churches, two dozen city squares, a brace of ambitious theatres at Place du Châtelet, the giant, iron-framed Les Halles food market, (Èmile Zola’s “Belly of Paris”), and the sensational network of a dozen avenues radiating from the Arc de Triomphe at the core of Haussmann’s Place de l’Ètoile.

(This comes from The man who created Paris from BBC by Jonathan Glancey on May 29, 2016.)

Does "sensational" here mean "extremely good; wonderful"?

Thanks in advance!
