New here, need orientation

Postby TrevorFL » Tue Oct 16, 2012 1:48 pm

Hello all!

I am a new wazer. I am learning to to the proper editing in my local area. and yes, I am reading the manual. :)

I got this situation (link attached) and I think it is to cluttered. But before going ahead and doing something wrong I want to ask the experts is this intersection is fine the way it is or what you may do to fix it.

Thank you in advance

There was a similar discussion about a similar set up not too long ago here. That intersection was changed after the discussion. My personal opinion is that it is cluttered and hard to maintain (plus there are a bunch of excess junctions and what look to be erroneous turn restrictions in your example). Another question is whether the intersection really gives the instructions that the editor is aiming for (assuming the turn restrictions are set correctly). Where the turn lanes curve into their destination road like that you don't get a turn instruction at the intersection, only a keep/stay instruction where the turn lane begins. That is usually not what I'm looking for at a simple crossroad.

Egad. It's debatable whether Flora or Dyer need to be split, but they absolutely do not need to be split into individual lanes like that.

Personally, I would un-split both roads and leave this whole intersection as a single junction between two-way roads, all turns enabled. Done, lock it, and it will never need to be revisited.

Totally agree. Those roads do not fit the guidelines to be split and the intersection does not need to be set up with turn lanes either. Not appropriate. Delete and re-do.

The roads aren't even connected together. That whole intersection is unroutable.

The user who did this needs to be contacted and stopped before major damage is done.

Thank you all for your quick reply. I will do what. Did not know I was able to "lock it" when I am only a level 0, but will do it so they don't do this editing mistake again.

Have a great day.

You can post a thread requesting it be locked by a higher level editor once you are done setting it up properly. Or here in this thread, if you get it done soon.

Ok, I was just about to start fixing this and suddenly stopped. This is is a long road with a long median. Regardless this, should I just create a one "both way" road in the middle and delete the "one way roads"? Or should I do it just at the points (junctions) close to the intersection area?

Thank you again for the help.

Start there and work out. From what I see, the road, median or not, doesn't meet splitting guidelines, which are in the wiki.

Ok. I finished the editing. That was a lot of work. ( I am new). Hope everything was good. Now I requesting that it get locked so it will not be easy for someone else to change it.

Thank you

:)
