Myriad Islands Highway Widening Scheme (24th May 2006)

Illspirit has announced that he'll be widening the roads of the Northern Islands. I spoke to him about the narrowness of the pavements and the height of the kerbs over Windows Messenger a few days ago, so this is partly my fault.

The new system will use kerbs which are 15 centimetres high (0.15 units). This is about the same as a normal car’s ground clearance and is the height of most kerbs in GTA San Andreas. Currently, the Myriad Islands’ kerbs are 20 centimetres high and that extra 5 centimetres is enough to make them undrivable.

The wider pavements will stop pedestrians strolling into the road so much. It will also give more space for street furniture, like fast food wagons and mail boxes.
