+1, before is better, after is "false" according to current conventions.
> ** Example B **
> A divided Main St. intersects a divided Remick Blvd. Like everyone else
> here -- and unlike the "before" example Martijn provided -- I prefer a
> four-point intersection. But just to the east, Remick and a service road
> both become undivided at the same intersection. I mapped it as a single
> Your colleague redrew it as a four-point intersection, this time with two
again before is better and after is problematic for the reasons you
described. The problem introduced in the after versions is btw. the same
problem also existent in the after picture that Martijn showed in his
initial post (a single carriageway discharging into a dual carriageway
should not become itself a dual carriageway, in the original posting this
was the way coming from the east/right).
