My contribution this time is rather anti-climatic; still, I want to do it anyway because I without cause blew up at two members of the NAM Team that tried to help me with the Diverging Diamond.  Well, I succeeded with it!!!

Access is provided via interchanges on the new highway. Here's an example - also shows where the new alignment ends

(This is still very much a work in progress)


Route in region:




It was easier to bypass this stretch rather than upgrade it to full freeway standards.

Not quite sure what to call this.. probably not very safe either with that on-ramp quite close to an inside exit  &Thk/(

Hi Casper! I think that's a variant of the 'paperclip interchange'. Looks great!

-----

I'm a little late to the game, but this is my first interchange to feature a diagonal on-slope height transition.



 After you make interchanges for 12+ years, you kinda get used to stuff. Change is always welcome though!   :thumbsup:

Casper, I like the artistic license you demonstrated with the pictured interchange; still, I am a bit troubled by a few things.

*   You could have availed an outside D1 ramp instead of that C1 inside ramp to feed traffic into the terminating highway.

*   I also question the utility of the C1 access ramp;  I believe that you could have done that with a FlexHeight and a D1 ramp.

*   Please also consider availing egress-only lanes on the through highway.

*   Along those same lines, A1 ramps are not appropriate for major highway-to-highway interchanges.  Please consider either an A2 or a D2 egress ramp instead.

You are headed in the right direction, Casper; keep at it!

Thanks, Pythias! I'll try to make adjustments where possible :)

In the meantime, there's also this on/offramp combination - still needs detailing of course..

(Looks at your screen capture and shakes his head in disapproval)  Casper, A2 ramps are more wisely used as egress ramps; NEVER use them as access ramps!!!  Avail a D2 access ramp where you have those A2 access ramps.

You're probably right about that. I guess the incoming outside lane clashing directly with the inside lane of the highway being merged on is indeed a bit dangerous :P
How's this instead?

Trumpet interchange variant with an absurdly long ramp

This completes a project making the highway north of the water fully grade-separated. (The south side is still being worked on)

It crosses 10 large city tiles.

Great to see two excellent interchange builders showing their finest in here! :thumbsup:

Here's a preview of an interim version of a new interchange coming to Tarkusian Cities . . .



It's interim as I still need to make diagonal D1 and E1 ramps to get rid of the nasty merges, and that highway is indeed planned to go over the river (and through the woods).
