List of roads in New Eiffel

Dead Tree Lane – formerly designated 03f under the New Eiffelic Road Numbering System (NERNS) – is a 6.98-metre (22.9 ft) long road in southern Új Repülő, in the Australissian state of New Eiffel.[1] It connects the J16 (01f) to the New Eiffel Main Route 1 (02f) and Prince Zarel I Road (06f). A partially paved road, it requires a large amount of maintenance. It was notable as the only road in New Eiffel to hold road signs, though they would eventually be removed in September 2020. A titular stone marker is, however, still located on the road. Dead Tree Lane comprises two streets, Dead Tree Street and Leon Montan is Gay Street, both of which were designated on 10 March 2020.[2]

Route description

Map of roads in New Eiffel; Dead Tree Lane in blue (middle-left).

Dead Tree Lane runs along the New Eiffel-United Kingdom South Border in Új Repülő, in the Australissian state of New Eiffel; it passes a bicycle shed to the south and a playground to the north. Dead Tree Lane begins at an intersection between the J16 on Smith Street and Prince Zarel I Road on Diamond Street, then runs a straight westerly course for 4.47-metres (14.6 ft) before splitting in two; the westerly course on Dead Tree Street meets Unnamed Circle – which is a roundabout leading into the New Eiffel Main Route 1 – whilst the second course runs northernly on Leon Montan is Gay Street for 2.51-metres (8.2 ft) into Triple Junction, which connects the westbound NEMR 1 on !khās Street, and the north-eastbound NEMR 1 in Új Repülő Street.[1][3][4]

History

Road signs of the roadway, October 2018. They were removed in September 2020.
Leon Montan is Gay Street as seen in March 2020.

The concrete pathway of the roadway was originally used for walking, and has presumably been around since at least the 1960s, or possibly earlier. By the early 2010s it had become neglected, however, and got buried beneath dirt. It was rediscovered in January 2018, then claimed by the Republic of New Finland – a distant predecessor to New Eiffel – however no developments were made to it. In April 2018, brothers Zed and Joost Smith began working several hours to clean-up the pathway and reconstruct it as a New Finlandic road, with the intent of using it for recreational cycling. It was named Dead Tree Lane as there was a tree stump in the area. Road signs were added on 16 October 2018, which made it the only road in New Eiffel to hold road signs, however they would eventually be removed in September 2020.[5]

On 20 November 2019, the roadway underwent further extensive maintenance, which included the construction of a small brick siding, and the road was expanded to connect to Unnamed Circle. A titular road sign was painted on 24 November, which still remains. The roadway was temporarily closed on 9 February 2020 due to Storm Ciara.[6] On 10 March 2020, two streets on Dead Tree Lane were designated, Dead Tree Street and Leon Montan is Gay Street.[2]

Other uses

The road has also been used and appeared in several New Eiffelic films, including The Great War Part I (2018) and Med-Evil Ghost (2019). It was also used as a central location for the cancelled film Rugbull (2019), which was primarily set around the roadway, where the main character, who is homeless, lived.
