I'm new to blender Blender and mainly use POV-Ray. Would it be possible in Blender to create scripts or custom tools that generate flexible roads? Like this:

Except (preferably) modifiable in real time by dragging control points using the mouse?

Thanks!

Using curves you should be able to do something similar.

enter image description here

On top view add a curve, give it some extrusion and depth. Enter edit mode and align the control points by pressing SY0. Exit edit mode and rotate the curve 90 degrees on the x axis (RX90) Go back to edit mode and manipulate your curve by adding points (Ctrl RMB and manipulating them you can get any shape you want.
