Lately, I've been thinking about possible solutions to building motorways between countries that drive on opposite sides of the road, such as across the Iran/Pakistan or Namibia/Angola borders. Of course, one solution is to have one carriageway cross over the other, but I've come up with something which I think might suit some situations better. Basically, the two countries would decide which side of the motorway traffic would drive on, and that would be the same throughout both countries. Then, in one of the countries, interchanges are designed to allow traffic to switch sides.

Here is my design for such an interchange. In this scenario, a motorway with right-hand traffic intersects a local road with left-hand traffic, but the concept would obviously apply equally well the other way around.

Looks a bit like interchange Leenderheide (A2/A67) in the Netherlands. It doesn't have the cloverleaf like exits though, and the two laned road has 4 lanes (A67)

i was bored at today's Economical Geography course, so here is a new drawing of a 1,5 four-level-stack 5-way-interchange

but I would draw it a little bit different afterwards. Maybe tomorrow in the Physical Geography course

Beautiful drawing. I doubt that I'll ever see such an interchange in reality

Nice drawing, Ripley. It's quite a tight curve in the motorway, actually.

Ladies and Gentelmen!
Let me show you a result of my two-year work. I present you a road map of an non-existent country called "Implikacja" (Implication). Every name is imaginary, some of them are inspired but I hope none of them does exist in the real world.
I've drawn it using crayons, fineliners and pencils, the Index of place names and the Legend have been printed.


"Implikacja" borders upon "Latestate" (English speaking non-existent country) west, upon "Jobbújnép" (Hungarian speaking) north-west, upon "Vacantia" (Italian speaking) north-east and Morze Potrzeb (Needs sea) south and east. The country is mountainous. "Wyniki" is the capital city.


Index of all (~1700) place names in Implikacja

And here you can see some biger and better photos. Zoomed and readable (click a link and then a photo) :

http://www.wrzuta.pl/obraz/brH6R5F3dX/
IMPLIKACJA

http://www.wrzuta.pl/obraz/5jQ5GmeTAK/
North-West Implikacja and a part of Jobbújnép

http://www.wrzuta.pl/obraz/2fFCjfLyyo/
Norht-East region and a part of Vacantia

http://www.wrzuta.pl/obraz/nm1viEZalK/
South-West provinces + a part of Latestate

http://www.wrzuta.pl/obraz/fhl6KVffdx/
And finally, central region with Wyniki aglomeration, surronded by a beautiful motorway.
The motorways have letters (A, B, C...), main roads have numbers from 10 to 99 and secondary roads have numbers from 200 to 299 and from 500 to 599. There are also international numbers of roads (D...) from the name of the continent (Dorumium)

I wait for opinions, especially from Hungarian, English, Italian and Polish users . I know there are a lot of mistakes but while I was drawing it, I was younger, less-educated and stupider.

I also hope it's not off-topic.

Wow that's great That must have been a lot of work!

I know some Dutch people do the same thing, but then digital with a vector drawing programme like Inkscape.

Man, this is absolutely stunning! I love the Hungarian settlement names Do you speak the language or just used a dictionary? My fave is the tovn Iparos, and the villages of Romhalmaz (heap of junk), labdaszedő (ball-boy), Futóverseny (running race), Rokkant (disabled), Szelep (valve), Egérfog (mouse tooth), and of course River Szafagy

Amazing! I can understand that this took you two years

A mixture of Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary, I'd say

Thanks I don't speak Hungarian, I used dictionary and road map of Hungary (switching letters). What do "Iparos" and "Szafagy" mean?

"Iparos" means "craftsman", "ipar" is "industry" btw. So it must be some kind of industrial town Szafagy means nothing just sounds great

I'd say with, because you gave the motorways the "D" prefix
