It's really the only method you have, so don't fret over those junctions. They serve a purpose, so they're not excessive at all.
I know they have a purpose. It's just that some phone clients always create junctions between 50 and 1000 meters apart, even on long several km's of rural roads without any intersections at all. I have seen in average between 3 and 4 junctions for each km of road. On such roads I have been removing most of the junctions. I would prefer to add junctions manually instead of removing heaps of unneeded ones. I also realize that the only way to add names to towns and other places are by using junctions. Normally this is easy because there are local roads connected and junctions are there already, but when there is only ONE road past that place it becomes necessary to add junctions.
