    Thank you. I appreciate your visit.

    Traffic grid is 95% green for Downtown and Center. Grid is 85% green in Industrial(which will not expand). Most frequented streets are along ''special zoning''(details to come) on lateral boulevards and at transports knots. Main Highway 11(Core counter-circle) shown on pictures get about 90-95% green, due to very efficient mass transit. All in all, also because the two secondary circles that are not filled yet with housing(25% completed). Secondary Highway 11(grand tour-3 residential circles) is about 85% green.

    Shown above, is the City Center, where three tunnel-highways meet Highway-11.
    traffic2.jpg Shown above is main residential circle(90% completed). Planners are still working on City support services before they get on this job of filling residential. The four lateral secondary boulevards(center-to-center) get most traffic at about 75% green, which are still to receive a tram line later. Only two small stretch are clearly jammed, which are use to turn about at Highway end, both in second and third circles.

    Very nice, traffic looks pretty good, Are those all one way roads or through 2 way streets next to each other? I have to say that I have been quite inspired by the circular city lately. I noticed that there are not very many that have been built recently so its nice to see them. I just finished my second circular/grid based city. Here is the traffic https://www.flickr.com/photos/125045369@N06/15304543696/ (the first one didn't end very well) but am having a hard time sticking to a master plan, I had one in mind for this city of a max of around 200,000 - 300,000 people, but I got a little carried away to 1.7 million haha!

    Thanks for following, as for your question, there are not many one way. Of course, in the Downtown there are two main one ways(meaning 4 streets in total) avenues. The Center turnaround for each circle center are also one way running counter-clockwise.

    Intersections are what cause traffic, so I plan the road layout very carefully, making sure that heavy traffic area are OFF MAIN ROADS, into districts of their own as for the Olympus and Universitas District.

    I took a peak at you city traffic, at this point seems not be be a major problem, but it may if you keep expanding. We have not talk much about mass transit, but that is really what saves me all the jams.

    Thank you for comments, and for sharing.

    With the update of the Core District, the layout of the tall offices left come out of the pack. In the end, I am very happy with the updates and lowering the amount of skyscrapers.

    Thanks to you for reviewing my city, as it's still growing.
