Yes it is. In this case it is probably a lot more clear if you have the full size drawing in front of you, but even more so if North was displayed. The comments posted have mostly referred to the Pala-U Road, which does nothing towards indicating just where this proposed road is going to be. :cheers:
People are mentioning Pala-U because the OP said "an intersection as the Rd climbs the hill at the 'Elephant temple' area"

So I was assuming the 4 lanes into town would follow Pala-U road down to town. I can't tell from the maps posted though.

As I read it, the 4 lanes go down the road that passes dinosaur market to the canal road.

But is it going to happen, has anyone actually been able to determine that. A new major road across all that virgin land could cost millions of USD dollars

A planned 6-lane highway coming towards town from the bypass!eeding into town & the last lanes peeling off South..
The new map doesn't show any changes to the Palu-U Road at all and the above didn't make much sense to me - why have a 6 lane highway if the road you are coming from only has 4? Currently it manages perfectly well with 2, albeit a pain if caught behind really slow vehicles. But much of it is already has 4 lanes, so I guess getting rid of the bottlenecks makes sense.
