Mini Motorways is a game where anyone can be a traffic management controller. You are in charge of a growing suburban city nestled in the heart of various real-world cities, and you will need to connect roads from neighborhoods to stores while keeping everything nice and organized.
In Mini Motorways, micromanaging and efficiency is the name of the game, and we will go over all of that in our Mini Motorways tips and tricks guide. While the game is simple enough to pick up and play at any time, there is a hidden layer of complexity to it all.

Tips and tricks:
The following are tips and tricks for the smooth gameplay.
- Traffic Planning Basics
In Mini Motorways, your main objective is to ensure that every car that spawns in your city can get to their destination within a reasonable time. The tutorial teaches you the basics of controls and mechanics, so make sure to play through it. In short, you can tap any empty square to enter the building mode. You never know where new houses or buildings are going to pop up, so you need to make sure to constantly be adding new roads to ensure everything is connected. A general rule of thumb to keep in mind is to avoid connecting too many roads to one “central” road. This will lead to traffic congestion down the line, and it is best to keep forking your roads as to not direct traffic to one central area.
- Use Roads to Block Off Spawns
When a week of in-game time has passed, you will be rewarded with more roads that you can use to expand your city. You will also get another reward which can be more roads, bridges, highways, traffic lights, and more. If you have leftover roads when you are done expanding your city, it might be a good idea to lay down those roads anyway even if you do not have a destination for them at the moment. The reason being is that the game will spawn new buildings and houses in random locations, but it will avoid spots that are already taken by roads and other structures.
