How are merging areas modelled?

A merging area should be modelled as a single link with as many lanes as the main road plus the merging lane(s). Make sure to only use a single connector at the end of a merging area to connect with the remaining lanes.
On motorways, use the 'free lane change' option for the links involved in order to increase capacity.
