Additional Intersection Shape Request for Street End Points

I would like to have a new terminating intersection shape created for the end points which is not possible under a joint, junction, crossing, or roundabout (that I know of at this time).  I would like a simple square option for a terminal end point of the street network that matches the width of the street (width*width).    

I've played around with the roundabout using inserted shapes on its edges and vertices and didn't like the results.  Also tried manipulating the roundabouts shape parameters (precision =0, innerRadius=0), but to no avail.  

With a little CGA manipulation, this square shape could be very versatile (not just for streets) but network type ideas.   

Thanks! Brian

Hi Brian,

Thanks for your feedback. To clarify things: You mean a new type that creates a square shape at an end node (instead of creating no shape like junction/crossing/freeway are doing)? And you would mainly use it in combination with a CGA rule?

Thanks for the response!  Yes, that is exactly what I am looking for.

Thanks, i bring this up to the team.


As a workaround, for years, I usually end up using a python node selection on valency value of 1 and set all resulting nodes to crossing not smart. additional cga is needed to end up the dead end correctly (uvsplits mostly to handle correctly ending curbs if needed.
