    Nice update. It is indeed a tight area to upgrade. I would remove a short congested section of the raised highway on the left side of the pics. A RHW-8S narrows down to RHW-6S before passing over what looks like an OWR-4 (hard to determine because of the size of the pic), then there is an MIS ramp that descends diagonally to ground level before merging with anothr MIS- I would keep the RHW-8S going until the MIS ramp and let the right-most lane go to that ramp.

    it was a pretty tight area to upgrade.. but I did the best i could. I would say traffic reduction was satisfactory but not great: Here are the changes i made from the prior posting above : And than the small reduction in traffic as the city now approaches 1/2 million in population :

    This is an area here , that i thought I wanted to upgrade a bit.. Perhaps expand this area into more one larger interchange- Traffic has gotten quite high on a couple of the networks -

    Thanks Tibi ! Yes the upgrade turned out great this time , it is quite effective ( at reducing traffic congestion) in the area and I was happy with the way things turned out and the current traffic flows - 1) first the OWR-3 upgrade to the OWR-4 and it also shows amazing stability with all those crossings in a row on the east side of the overpass 2) most of the L1 RHW-6s was upgraded to a 8s after the overpass to the north side. 3) and finally the addition of another mis ground network was ( squeezed in), to help out with north bound traffic flows to the east of the overpass.. Here is the current traffic congestion which you can compare with my first posting's pic. -

    Hi there! There is pretty big traffic over there! I'm looking forward to the network upgrade... Nice work, anyway! - Tyberius

    Interchange Upgrade - due to traffic congestion .. City = CBD I have not did a CJ update for awhile so I thought I would do one this morning My city CBD's population has grown now to 375 K.. and so there would be expected areas in the city that are experiencing traffic issues.. So here is the worst of those , which is one of my newer areas of Highway system integration between the (soon to be released) REW + the RHW - The circled red areas denote possible relocation of the smaller dwelling residents there.. In addition i am hoping I will be able to upgrade to a one tile median , especially on the Level 1 RHW- 6s.. The 3 main network arteries requiring an upgrade due to traffic congestion issues: 1) OWR-3 2) Level 1 RHW- 6s 3) MIS ramp

    Pierre, another great posting by you my friend ! I had a little bit more time to offer you a respectable reply that your excellent posting deserves.... 1) yes the Parclo, has turned out to be quite interesting indeed concerning the routing + traffic.. It looks like part of it has ideal usage , where you have the yellow there. But than we have a part of it that is only light blue.. ( not sure of the exact traffic numbers there), but you are a bit dissatisfied with the usage there I assume ? 2) the second section you mention, the problem here as you state is clearly traffic congestion . This will be the interesting future project you have going for us to keep in mind.. and to await your proposed construction decision here and wait for further developments and a follow up postings from you

    The next area of reworking the highway system is in the following case in Arcens: There are actually two locations requiring changes: 1) The parclo, where we see that only some of the links are used, while others are inactive (in the morning commute, which is the one for which things are designed). The unused links will not be removed, but reduced to simple MIS sections; the others will be dimensioned according to their respective loads. 2) The entrance and exit ramps at the top right of the picture. These ramps connect the highway with an avenue with a GLR in the center. There is a heavy load on the avenue and the entrance ramp to the highway, starting at the GLR+bus station: the bulk of the load is bus traffic going to Marlande; Sims reach the station by GLR and switch to buses to continue on their commute. The ramps will be redesigned to take the loads into account. A particular challenge is posed by the proximity between the highway interchange and the entrance/exit ramps. Some creativity will be required.

    Thanks! Here is to many more when I can!

    Of course I'll provide the new congestion view: after all the entire exercise was done in order to correct the flagrant overload on the old parclo interchange. However, as noted in my last post, il will take a while for the traffic simulator to 'recover' from the important change. Meanwhile I am doing work in other cities in the cluster, starting with those that require an upgrade of their connection to Marlande, which has to be changed from RHW-6S to RHW-8S. So please hang on and be patient, it will come in due time.
  20. The United Cities of Talaran

    wow, this is fantastic Pierre ! I really love how this turned out my friend I just have 1 new request... I would love to see a traffic congestion view. ..just so we can compare that to what existed here prior with the old highway system you had in place..?
  21. The United Cities of Talaran

    Construction work was completed on the interchange, some surface roads were rerouted, the area formerly occupied by the partial cloverleaf was redesigned and a new commercial zone was defined on that terrain. The Mayor of Marlande and the High Councillor of the United Cities inaugurated the new interchange with much pomp and circumstance. The High Councillor announced that the new interchange was only the start of a complete overhaul of Talaran's highway system. A view of the completed works is shown here: Traffic views will be shown later after the city recovers fully from the enormous disruption caused by the construction works.

    Nice work on the NAM sorry I have not really been too active lately

    We are still lacking an S -curve or what we refer to as a one lane shift puzzle piece for the RHW 8S networks.... But i was still able to construct one from 2 starter pieces.. Here we see it has some texture flaws, and quite sharp turns since its lay out is only over 3 tiles.. In comparison from looking at my pic, we see that the RHW- 6S S - curve puzzle piece is a lay out done over 5 tiles with more gradual turns..or curves
