Gobras City is the capital of Gobrassanya. This page is a guide for the collaborative creation of the city.

General layout

The city is based around the Capitol building, which is set within a Kilometre Square. Roadways radiating away from the capitol are named after the districts of Gobrassanya. Various ministry departments and are located in the blocks surrounding the capitol grounds.

Street grid

The block size for the street grid is 125m with major streets planned on the 1 to 1.5 km blocks

Street grid, in the suburbs

Suburban developments are based around a "quad" super-block, which is itself roughly based on the 125m grid.

Main (highway=trunk,primary,secondary) streets are 2km apart and stay basically straight and are typically divided highways. Roughly at the 1km mark are tertiary roads, which bend and move with the terrain. The tertiary roads are flanked by dedicated cyle routes. At approximately the 500m marks are unclassified roads that also connect into neighbouring squares. All other roads within the 2*2 square are residential and not through connected. parks, schools, facilities as appropriate...

As a guideline there should be at least one rail or subway station per quad.

To the southeast the city street plan is not laid out by a grid layout. Streets will meander more in this area. neighborhoods will also be laid out as they are in the west part of town, however there will be some larger high density residential and commercial developments located around the area such as what is constructed at Enalee to the east. Soran should also be designed as one of these districts. These areas need more assistance in construction.

The Oleander hills region of the city will be more upper middle class and upper class homes with more spacing between streets and more upscale amenities.

Principal Highway Network

A 1-2-3-60-101 are completed in their current alignments through the city. Interchange spacing regarding any new interchanges should be spaced at approx 2km between interchanges with allowance of 1km spacing in the city center.

A-201 can be extended north-south if needed to accommodate future growth if needed.

202 (A 202) Bangerter Highway is the outer belt highway. Interchange spacing along this corridor should also follow the 2km spacing rule as well. confining junctions to major thoroughfares only. This highway is planned to be upgraded to a full motorway as needed (as development occurs along the route)

31 will likely remain as a trunk route (superhighway/expressway) and not be upgraded to a full motorway as development near the corridor does not allow for the roadway to be expanded and it is better served by A 60

Speed Limits

Roads generally should have the following maximum speed limits:

  • Motorway: 120 km/h
  • Trunk: 100 km/h
  • Primary: 90 km/h
  • Secondary: 70 km/h
  • Tertiary, Unclassified: 50 km/h
  • Residential: 30 km/h
  • Living street, Service: 20 km/h

Within the 100 Ring lower speed limits generally apply:

  • Motorway: 100 km/h
  • Trunk: 90 km/h
  • Primary: 70 km/h
