Highways

Transport Pixl is also responsible for Pixl's highway network, consisting of large controlled access freeways, and smaller regional highways (which differ from normal roads in Pixl in that they are maintained by Transport Pixl instead of the municipality, and that they are designed with higher top speeds in mind). Pixl's controlled access freeways, are numbered under the 400-series name. Even numbers (400) are north/south routes, and odd are east/west.

Some of the highways in Pixl, notably the three major freeways (Highway 400, 401, and 402) are part of the larger MRT highway network, and as such are concurrently labeled with their A/B road naming counterparts. For example, the section of B751 that passes through Pixl is labeled concurrently as B71/Hwy-402. Another example is B752/Hwy-401, which is concurrently labeled with both its Pixl and MRT highway designation throughout its entire span.

Hwy-400

Pixl Highway 400 (part of the B753 Highway)is a north/south highway in Pixl's east end. It begins at the Pixl-Espil border to the south continuing as B753, interchanges with Hwy-401/B752, then A76, and finally ends at the canal south of Xandar-Vekta border, where the highway continues north as B753.
At its southern terminus, Hwy-400 continues as B753 into Espil, where it interchanges with B750 and B751 (connecting to Espil Ecilidae Airport), and finally terminates at Waverly. At its northern terminus, Hwy-400 continues as B753 in Xandar, however it is no longer a controlled-access highway. B753 terminates at Illrea-7.

Hwy-401

Pixl Highway 401 (concurrently as B752) is a east/west highway, and is Pixl's oldest and longest highway (not including B-class highways running into other cities). It terminates to the east at A76, and to the west at Hwy-402/B71. A large section of Hwy-401 (between the Cliotis Region and Downtown Pixl) was built before modern Pixl highway standards, and as such this section has a speed limit of 90 km/h, instead of the standard 100 km/h of the 400-class highways in Pixl.

Hwy-402

Pixl Highway 402 (part of the B751 Highway) is a north/south highway towards Pixl's west end. It begins at the Pixl-Espil border to the south, continuing as B751, and continues north to Xandar as B751.
Outside of Pixl B751 continues south into Espil, where it interchanges with B750, then turns east, runs through EEA, interchanges with B753 (which is Hwy-400 in Pixl), and terminates at A76. Hwy-402/B751 also continues north of Pixl, where it enters Xandar, then terminates at A78.

History

Initially founded only a couple days after Seshpenguin's unbanning from the server, Pixl itself has a rich history behind it. Beneath the Pixl-Cliotis region, there are artifacts from the beginning of Gamma from the previous city, which has since been demolished. Pixl, as we know it today, was initially founded about 2 years ago as Avult, owned by Nano69. Later, Applearon, took over and renamed the city Kloyne. After, the city was renamed to Cliotis, owned by Cliotey. Finally, Seshpenguin took over the city. It was initially named "Scyfil", a recommendation by EspiDev, but Seshpenguin later decided to name the city Pixl.
To this day, Pixl continues to expand, and is at the forefront of standards for a modern city.
