Roadways (as a lot of scenics) are often "compressed" - provided vehicles are positioned with thought it does not normally notice, except, as in our case when installing the Faller Roadway System on St.Laurent we realised just how narrow the roads actually were ! Still, there is just about enough room & visually it looks OK.

One "trick" we have employed is to cut down the road markings to an absolute minimum - this has had the effect of "widening" the roads visually. So far, nobody seems to have noticed (or at least said anything).

A lot depends on the period modelled & the fact that over the years all vehicles have got wider as well as larger.
