"Awesome update! Both by its lenght and content, of course your highways were amazing as always! And finnaly somebody explained me about those plus lanes, I never got that "

-- vivapanda

It's a vague explaination, but I heard this one during my study. Glad I could help you understand the purpose of these lanes ;)

"Some pics are a bit too crowded for my taste, but your highway building skills keep impressing me a lot! Some scenes (specially 4.12) have reminded me a lot to those massive and complex highways haljackey did years ago... A very cool update overall!"

-- TekindusT

"Very nice, and as Tekindust said, these highways are certainly reminiscent of Haljackey's. I love the night-lit highway and the sunken rail through the urban area."

-- Bipin

It does look a bit like one of Haljackey's cities, but I actually tried to cut down the skyscrapers. It was a lot more crowded in this city when I started, and a lot more chaotic too.

"Wonderful!!!Can you give me the link to those amazing prefab offices you've shown????"

-- Gugu3

By all means!

Hoogerhey is a neighbouring city of Konrad. It's right across the river Kareel and it's alos part of the Capital District. Hoogerhey hosts about 200 000 inhabitants and the Imaginian gouvernment. The is the capital of the Republic of Imaginia. The city itself is not really that big (only about 300 000 inhabitants). The rich and powerful and the poor and powerless are quite close to each other in this city, and sometimes this leads to social stress.

We start of at the office district in the city center. It's quite spacious; there's room for small parks as well as tall office buildings. This is the economic heart of the city.

im-5.01.jpg

Moving on east to the river, we come to the Nederheye district. This contains some offices, but also some residences in the south. You see here the entrance of the Vreerust Tunnel (N25) leading to Konrad.

im-5.02.jpg

The Nederheye area at night. At the right, you see the International Congress Center. Here the Imaginian politcians have meetings with their foreign colleagues...

im-5.03.jpg

And here we have the Gouvernment Districs, showing off some of the Imaginian ministries...

im-5.04.jpg

The main Parlamaint Building. Glad I could give this most excellent BAT a worthy purpose ^_^

im-5.05.jpg

Moving to the higher grounds of Hoogerhey, we come to Overheye. This district has quite some variation in building styles. It's home to poor as well as rich people in the city

im-5.06.jpg

im-5.07.jpg

im-5.08.jpg

im-5.09.jpg

Moving west we come to Sallandia. This city district is mostly made of pre-fab buildings...

im-5.10.jpg

But there are also some appartment blocks for the middle-class...

im-5.11.jpg

"Yo dawg, I heard you like prefabs..."

im-5.12.jpg

im-5.13.jpg

im-5.14.jpg

Soccer (or football, as we Europeans would call it) is also very popular in Imaginia. Here we have the stadium of the KSA (Konrad Sports Association) soccer team.

im-5.15.jpg

And I'd like to conclude this update with some Road-geek pics. Here we see a brand-new stretch of the C40. The C40 has the nickname Konrade Freeway, because it follows the river Konrade. This stretch is wider and less steep than the old stretch, which was running one kilometer west. The old stretch has been demolished. We are heading south...

im-5.16.jpg

We're approaching a major interchange: Hoogerhey Crossing. Here the C40 links with the C75 and N20. You see you already have to split up here..

im-5.17.jpg

Hoogerhey Crossing. It's not the best interchange, but it will do. However, you can't get on or off the N20 when heading east. The C40 (coming from the north/right) joins with the C75 and heads east (bottom). Straight ahead, the route continues as the N20 (left), which is not an official freeway, though it looks like one. The N20 is also called the Hoogerhey Bypass.

im-5.18.jpg

Heading further south on the N20, we come to Exit Hoogerhey-West...

im-5.19.jpg

A close-up...

im-5.20.jpg

A large junction rail and freeway junction, everything perfectly planned like a baws! B)

im-5.21.jpg

And finally, one other pic of the N20 to conclude. A bit further East, the N20 ends on an T-intersection and turns south to join with the A5.

im-5.22.jpg

Next update: Newlandervayne. Stay tuned!

Best,

Maarten

Pic 5.18: I love that intersection.

The RHW6C splitter to 2x RHW4+RHW2 is a piece with so much potential yet i seldom see it used.

Wow. Your cities look so cool especially your highways and transit system. Pic. 518 definitely gives new meaning to the name 'Spaghetti Junction'.:D

Now that's what I call a great all rounder! Urban, poor, transport, rural (5-17) and industrial! You really know how to spoil us.
