How to combine imported streets and imported shapefile in CityEngine?

Hi guys,

I want to combine the imported osm streets and shapefile in CityEngine, but I have encountered two problems. Could you please help me solve this?

First I imported the osm street into CityEngine, after that I tried to delete the streets which can not be aligned to the terrain, but I can not delete them after selecting. The streets are just like the picture below,

The second problem is the shapes which I imported into CityEngine coincide with the imported streets. The picture below shows this problem. What should I do to deal with this problem, is there any function or CGA rule to handle this?

This is the shapefile which I imported into CityEngine.

This picture shows that the shapes coincide with the imported streets.

Thank you for your help!

Convert Streets to shapes with the following  go to Graph > Convert to Static Shapes.

This converts models to Shapes.

and later Layer > Merge Layers to combine the required layers

Hi Jawadh,

Thank you for your help. I have tried your method to convert the streets to static shapes. After that I did delete the streets below the height map. But I don't want the streets to be static model, because I want to edit the streets further. Do you have any other method to solve this problem?
