The turtle is a traffic management solution for highway exits. It consists of an asset and an idea.

 

The idea is to divide the traffic into three main flows through an advanced highway roundabout and traffic distribution system. Advanced to me, at least. Until now my highway exits were a real nightmare.

 

This roundabout actually works. Cars will use all three lanes and traffic never stops moving, as shown on the animated GIF.

 

What you have to do is place The Turtle between your highway exit and your town. Then connect the two stub end to the highway and the six lane road on the opposite end to your main residential or commercial hub.

 

Now connect the roundabout ramps to industrial or other main areas and then again those areas to each other and to the main hub, making sure that the connections are far enough away from The Turtle.

 

In my tests this system was able to comfortably handle the entire traffic of a 24k Cim town with one Turtle, with traffic reading never going red. 

 

Placing one additional highway exit at the industrial area instantly turns the traffic reading towards the green.

 

Note there are no public transportation systems at all in the test city, and all zones are high density.

 

Anyhow, let me know what you think. All suggestions and criticisms are welcome.

Thank you Sims. I really like looking at the traffic on it too. Mesmerizing. Maybe I'll make a quick tutorial when I get bored of CSL on making the GIFS :)

Hi TPB, I like your work! I am using few of your assets in Skyline. I wonder why u didn't make a menu icon for this 1? Is it hard to make? Can you have an update?

Again, thank you for your hard work.
