I'm nowhere near to the quality of what's shown here, but this picture blew my mind. Enjoy.

 I found this incredible pix somewhere in the internet without retaining the author's name.
However, he is responsible for the french version, the English with any mistakes are wholly mine.

English
 This exchanger (?, from the Collins dic) of Huan jue wan was finished last week in the periphery of Chongqoing, enormous metrpolis in the south-west of China, after eight years of construction.

 The work superimposes five levels where the tallest one is 37 meters tall. No less than 15 ramps had to be constructed to allow the traffic to go from one level to another, in eight directions.

French
 L'échangeur de Huang jue wan a été achevé la semaine dernière en périphérie de Chongqoing, immense métropole du sud-ouest de la Chine, après huit années de travaux.

 L'ouvrage superpose cinq voies de circulation dont la plus haute culmine à 37 mètres. Pas moins de 15 bretelles ont dû être construites pour permettre aux véhicules de passer d'un niveau à l'autre, dans huit directions.

China has been building a crapload of highways. I check here every now and then for developments - you might like:

A highway system for a developing area that will be extended in the future. It's unfinished in both senses, but I think it still looks good.

I offer up a recent project of ming:  the Compound Switchback Junction!!!  The first screenshot shows the overall interchange while the other two screenshots are where I feel I goofed or can otherwise improve.  The third screenshot shows how the Compound Switchback begins (ends) to the north and south.

Plants are the weakest point here, but main theme is RHW, so OK - there is nothing better than natural traffic in the city, I hope it is not a generator  ;)
Sorry guys, I'll be here next week, so good luck!

The trees have really grown over the years. They looked better small.

No traffic generators are used in the making of these images.

New video: SimCity 4 Expedition.

This video travels on new highways and areas being developed before heading in and out of the big city. Existing highways traveled on in previous videos have also been expanded to handle the increasing growth of the region.

I am trying to create a 'redundancy' highway network meaning that there is a reliable alternative route to take if a highway is closed or has reduced capacity for various reasons including congestion, construction and crashes.
