Minimize out items of cardboard first. This can be a grown job with a knife. In case you have a superb knife it can work a lot better than scissors.
I made my roads 4.5 inches huge. This can be a good width for 2 lanes and a middle line. Minimize totally different lengths and reduce some curved elements as effectively. Should you do not need to mess with the curved items, you’ll be able to create intersections of the straights.

These are the items I reduce for the car parking zone. The cardboard tubes are rest room paper rolls.
Use scorching glue to assemble the car parking zone as proven beneath. I positioned low sides on three sides of the car parking zone to stop vehicles from rolling away.
Use a Sharpie marker or related to attract the parking spots. Be certain the vehicles you need to use match within the parking tons.
I painted the bathroom paper rolls grey. Then I pinned a brief part of street to make a ramp to the car parking zone.
