List of roads in New Eiffel

Prince Zarel I Road – formerly designated 06f under the New Eiffelic Road Numbering System (NERNS)[1] – is a short, roughly 3.38-metre (11 ft) long road in eastern Új Repülő, in the Australissian state of New Eiffel. It serves as a connector route between the New Eiffel Main Route 1 (02f) to an intersection between the J16 (01f) and Dead Tree Lane (03f). It is named after the founder and first prince of the Principality of New Eiffel, Zarel I, which made it the only official thing to be named after the prince within New Eiffel. The road is commonly regarded as the worst road in New Eiffel, as it is not paved nor regularly maintained; according to the New Eiffelic Ministry of Transportation, it was the least used road within New Eiffel in 2020. The road comprises a single street, Diamond Street of the Esteemed Gems, which was proclaimed on 10 March 2020.[2]

Route description

Unofficial, unused road marker.

The roadway is unpaved, and runs southbound in eastern Új Repülő, in the Australissian state of New Eiffel. Prince Zarel I Road starts at the New Eiffel Main Route 1 in Gæ Pis Street, due southbound: it passes a playground that belonged to New Eiffel School to the west, and New Finland Monument to the east, for roughly 3.38-metres (11 ft), than terminates at an intersection between the J16 and Dead Tree Lane, overlooking 39, 41 Bomb Shelter – an air-raid shelter that was built in the United Kingdom during World War II. The road comprises a single street, Diamond Street of the Esteemed Gems, which was proclaimed on 10 March 2020.[3][4] The road is commonly regarded as the worst road in New Eiffel, as it is not paved nor regularly maintained.

History

The route follows a concrete pathway that was originally used for walking, and was presumably built around at the 1960s, or possibly earlier. Between 31 July–2 August 2016, during the construction of New Eiffel School, the concrete was removed in order for the construction of a playground.[5] Tree bark was poured over the old route in order to create a new pathway for the playground. After mid-2017, it became unmaintained, and weeds began growing over the tree bark. In March 2018, now claimed by the Republic of New Finland – a distant predecessor to New Eiffel – the route begun being used as a connector between the New Eiffel Main Route 1 and the J16, which saved a lot of time, however it remained unincorporated. In April 2018, following the opening of Dead Tree Lane, the road became rarely used. In late 2018, it was officially incorporated as a New Eiffelic road, and named Prince Zarel I Road after the prince of New Eiffel. On 10 March 2020, the street Diamond Street of the Esteemed Gems was proclaimed by the Ministry of Transportation.[2][6] Today, following the dissolution of New Eiffel on 1 November,[7] the roadway is located in the Australissian state of New Eiffel, which was established on 12 January 2021.[3]

Usage

The roadway is poorly maintained, and thus rarely used.

According to the New Eiffelic Ministry of Transportation, it was the least used road within New Eiffel in 2020. Although the roadway has always been unpaved and poorly maintained, it was the only way to directly connect the New Eiffel Main Route 1 and the J16, which saved time, and made it a popular route. However, in April 2018, brothers Zed and Joost Smith cleaned-up a recently-discovered stone pathway (which would retroactively be known as Dead Tree Lane) and reconstructed it as a New Finlandic road, originally with the intent of using it for recreational cycling. Although it connected to the New Eiffel Main Route 1 via Új Repülő Street which was slightly further away, the road was much better maintained compared to Prince Zarel I Road, and was also paved. By May, Prince Zarel I Road became rarely unused, and was even omitted from several transportation maps as well as the official Ministry of Transportation's road closure data.[8]
