Entry 27: Comples roads are complex
Hey guys and welcome back to Gabtoria. Today were going to try and fix the screw up that is my wives attempts at mayoring.
Namely in the way that she seemed to completely ignore any part of the job that she didn't have a major interest in which happened to include traffic which, as you can imagine led to a few issues like this.
Yup, turns out that having a single road into a rapidly expanding town isn't such a good idea. Still, traffic issues aren't exactly uncommon in Gabtoria so I'll just let them deal with it for a bit while I go and find Harry and pester him till he comes up with a solution!
Fast forward several weeks and Harry has a plan (or at least he says he has, he may just be bluffing it to try and stop me pestering him).
N ow luckily we had this bit of land that we hadn't filled in at the top of the town, rather handily next to Prenston Junction. Apologising to the people who were expecting houses to built here for them we quickly got to work laying some roads in preparation for our solution.
Fast forward some more time and we've made a start on the solution, namely turni
ng the top T-junction on the Prenston Interchange into a stack junction via some questionable additional roads.
Another couple of months on we have this. A functional and effective traffic relief for the bottom Nomyton junction!
Also, as a side note. Remember we mentioned that people complained about us building a huge road on the land they'd expected us to build them a house on?
Well we still managed to come up with some housing solutions for them! Not sure how fond of them they are though but were not that bothered, it's a home isn't it?
Anyway with the new expansions to the interchange done lets take a look at how it currently looks from above.
Well it's definitely not getting any less confusing, so many roads going everywhere. Still it works so let's not mess it up trying to tinker with it. As you might also notice, we gave them some trees to hopefully mask some of the noise of the road. No idea if its worked I've had any mail from that neighbourhood redirect to a shipping container in Gabtoria Harbour.
Anyway finally for today, here we have a overview of Nomyton as it stands pretty much completed as of now with much less traffic issues than several months ago.
No idea what we'll be looking at next time but hope this suffices for now.
