No symbol is provided in the default.ocd symbol set.
Use careful editing and the tips below to produce a smart junction:-
When surveying, run the main, straighter path, often the side path is not clear even though running on the side
path brings you onto the main path with no difficulty.
Try to give a gap of at least the normal path gap at the junction, otherwise folks will just think it's duff cartography!
See the visible path junction topic.
