The notion of Wardrop equilibrium in congested networks has been very popular in congested traffic modelling since its introduction in the early 50's, it is also well-known that Wardrop equilibria may be obtained by some convex minimization problem. In this paper, in the framework of $\Gamma$-convergence theory, we analyze what happens when a cartesian network becomes very dense. The continuous model we obtain this way is very similar to the continuous model of optimal transport with congestion of Carlier, Jimenez and Santambrogio [6] except that it keeps track of the anisotropy of the network.
