Hi Richard et al,

The old but very useful utility !StreetMap is a great time-saver here. 
It translates any !Drawfile of interlocking single lines into a 'map' 
of parallel lines and open junctions, in which you can set the line 
width and 'road' width (white space between the parallel lines)

This can easily form the basis for the single-line file to feed into 
!StreetMap. The over- and under-passing lines to modify the map into a 
Celtic knot at the junctions, as Richard suggests, can easily be added 
in Artworks.

Hope this is a. clear and b. helpful.

John O.
