Going on the Northern Bank

First of all, I'd like to say I was quite flattered with such positive comments, especially from well-known CJers as Blakeway, Schulmanator and TekindusT! Thanks!


Frdm920: So sorry! Is it Perth? (I reaaaallly hope so). Thanks!

ImVhOzzi: Thanks!

TekindusT: Cheers!

Picard: Thnaks, glad to hear that!

Schulmanator: A duck?!? :D Thanks!

Wallacet: I thought I'd do something different to add a degree of depth. Thanks!

JGellock: Thanks! I hope to see you commenting!

Blakeway: Mountain suburb? Heheheh, thats a cool name!

While as seen in the last entry, the eastern area is quite low-density. The Northern Bank of the river is quite high density, with a more older neighbourhood feel. It is also home to the A-1 and the A-2 Freeways, of which meet in a giant double trumpet interchange (I will show this in its entirety later, all you get now is sneak peeks at little bits 3.gif), as well as the B-26.

Now for some pics!


Some modern Euro-styled apartment  amongst some more traditional houses, overlooking the river.


The Blackmoor signature: Trees and parks at every turn amongst the buildings.


This bridge leads to the Middle Island. The island is a major congestion point, as many drivers converge onto St. Andrews Parade.


Middle Island. Today the traffic is a little better.


Ah! This is the A-2 crossing the river, heading west. The middle lane is used for continuing along the A-2 in a westerly direction, while the outer lane goes north/south on the A-1, or off onto St. Andrews Pde.


More interchangey goodness. To avoid weaving, it has 3 entry ramps and 4 exit ramps, instead of 2 of each on a normal interchange.


The buildings and the freeway.


A good photo to photoshop, maybe?


This inner-city neighbourhood can be quite congested at times.


Dun dun! Traffic!


A roads are the highest priority; they are not allowed to have any at-grade intersections. B roads are not allowed to have at-grade intersections, except with A roads. Here is an infamous example, the A-1/B-26 interchange.


Finally a nice nature shot to tie it all up.

Hope you enjoyed! Please comment!

That A1 looks rather massive! Oh and damn you for suddenly showing nature not more interchanges

Cool update! I've loved the penultimate pic, the one you show the intersection. I'm sure you've devoted a lot of hours to you RHW construction...
