Works, thank you!
Only a little "bug": can't build bridges over interchanges, collision still present in that case.

I have another mod to do so, but it is more like a cheat. That mod removes the collision box for roads completely.

The weird thing is that with the current mod you could lay a road over the interchange at ground level (that should be impossible, road will touch the interchange) but can't lay a bridge that won't touch the interchange...

Wow, this is the mod that I was looking few months ago, but because of restrictions in the mod then (building highway intersections and placing buildings and.. Don't remember all), Hyperwolf came with another mod: allow highway intersections, which I have used to build my cities. As fantastic as this mod sounds im not sure if I want to go back - as I have zoned so much already. But does this mod have any restrictions similar to earlier mod when placing the highwaysintersections and buildings?

Fantastic job anyhow!

What I want to stress is that a lot of users here have been hoping a reworked highway system from FHI, as the current is so full of flaws and difficult compared to that in SC4, but, this mod really opens the highway system of this game to a whole new level - moreso as it should have been from get-go. You could say that this mod is a reworked highway system.

Wow, brilliant hack! :D
Just one question - since you hid the colision box underground - will it cause any problems with underground trains? Or will it just block at certain height so that a simple raising or lowering of the track will be a sufficient workaround?

@mobio: In fact, I hid the collision box of the interchange underground. So, you can build any road on the ground. The bridge can't be built because the foundation of the bridge (underground) will hit the collision box.

@Rene: Thank for your compliment. In fact, this mod is not that great. I just simply change one variable there. This mod doesn't have the problem that hyperwolf's mod has. Hyperwolf's problem is, the highway will not snap to the interchange. But this mod will.

@hebl: You are right, at certain height, the track will hit the collision box. But at this point, the track is almost at the ground level already. The default height of the metro track is way below the interchange and this is not a problem.

One more bug of this mod is, placing the interchange will not clean up the tree on the ground. You need to remove all the tree around the area before building the interchange.

Only an idea (maybe a bad one): could you but the collinsion box waaaaaaaaaaay lower? Maybe this solves the bridge foundation problem.

@mobio: I can't, because it will hit the metro line. If you really want to build the bridge over the interchange, I can give you the collision box remover mod. That mod will sure allow you to build your bridge across the interchange.
