Google map alternative roads show with different colour

I have the following google map JsFiddle - where i need to display multiple option between 2 location - what i did show only one route - need if possible 2 more to draw with different color.

In documentations what i got i wasn't to clear for me to solve.

$(document).ready(function(){

var markers = [

    {
        "title": '',
        "lat": '56.965969',
        "lng": '24.143496',
        "description": ''
       }

   ,

    {
        "title": '',
        "lat": '56.966259',
        "lng": '24.385860',
        "description": ''
       }];

Answer
  1. set the provideRouteAlternatives option to the DirectionsRequest to true

provideRouteAlternatives
Type: boolean Whether or not route alternatives should be provided. Optional.

  1. add a second loop to process any additional routes returned

    service.route({
        origin: src,
        destination: des,
        provideRouteAlternatives: true,
        travelMode: google.maps.DirectionsTravelMode.DRIVING
    }, function (result, status) {
        if (status == google.maps.DirectionsStatus.OK) {
            for (var j = 0; j < result.routes.length; j++) {
                var path = new google.maps.MVCArray();
                polyArray.push(new google.maps.Polyline({
                   map: map,
                   strokeColor: colors[j],
                   strokeOpacity: 1.0,
                   strokeWeight: 5
                }));
                polyArray[polyArray.length - 1].setPath(path);
                for (var i = 0, len = result.routes[j].overview_path.length; i < len; i++) {
                    path.push(result.routes[j].overview_path[i]);
                }
            }
        }
    });
