Road. The road object has not been given a major overhaul but it easier to use. In the past, when you used the Roadway (NURBS), the view would change from a Top/Plan view to Top. Because of this you would loose all the 2-D information you required to place the road accurately.
In Vectorworks 2012, this has been changed so that when you select the tool, the view does not change. This might seem like a small improvement,but it is useful.
