Like bgplayer said, it's in Macedonia, east of the town of Stip.

It seems that it really has same grade crossings (it's not a freeway interchange after all). The east-west road should be a freeway in the future. Maybe they've built something recently and kept the old stuff too. This might be a temporary solution of some kind. But I still don't get it...

Yeah, and how do you make a turn from south-east onto the road going north?

I've figured it out, it is grade-separated and complete, but it has to be the most unlogical junction i've ever seen:

I hope it's clear enough:

Probably there are factors that we are not aware of.

I think one of the reason's its really messed up is because of the homes that line the road on the north side, east of where the 2 roads cross

I think it's clever-- it provides all movements without moving what must be a railroad or requiring more than one modest bridge over it. Good job, Macedonian highway engineers!

Here's one for you-- a trumpet with a traffic signal in the middle of it!


There's even a webpage about it with ground-level photos.

The trumpet itself is new, c.2003, along with the US 13 bypass running southeast from the interchange. The freeway segment of US 58 running to the northeast is from the late '70's-early '80's. To me, the interesting thing about this interchange is that it was obvious that the added US 13 link would be built at some point, but no provision for it was made in the design of the initial US 58 bypass.

This gem of an interchange will be opening soon near Waterford in Ireland. Its going to be the interchange between the under construction M9 (from the capital, Dublin) and a major east-west motorway/DC, the (under construction) M25 from Cork - Rosslare ports, basically. It'll also link to the N24, a route under construction from Limerick, another city.

I propose a new junction name for this, namely "abject stupidity". It'll be jammed from day 1, mark my words.

I think Tom 958 is right, it is actually quite simple. A way to build a complete interchange but having all the ramps on just one side of the road. Like he said, it allowed the corridor on the other side (probably a railway) to remain intact.

We have a variety of interchange types here in South Africa...

Stack - E.B. Cloete Interchange (aka "Spaghetti Junction"), Durban



Half stack - Kuils River Interchange, Cape Town



Cloverstack - Buccleuch Interchange, Johannesburg



Directional T and cloverleaf - Elands Interchange and Rand Airport Interchange, Johannesburg



Trumpet - not sure of the interchange name, but it's the northern N1/N4 interchange, located just north of Pretoria



And then, what would an interchange gallery be like without spaghetti? This interchange is located at the entrance to Johannesburg's airport:

It`s simple: this is a junction on the French-British border. So the cars have to change the trafic directions (from left to right and revers)
