Pacidic Highway mucked-up by construction changes

Ian Steer

I used OSM on my GPS when travelling on the Pacific Motorway between Port Macquarie & South West Rocks recently, and routing was a disaster through all the construction works.

 

It may just stem from the tagging of a bridge currently in use as “construction”.  I’m not confident-enough to go and make any changes myself.  I apologise for not knowing how to give the reference to the bridge in question correctly, but I think it has a way number of 481729429.  It is near the village of Kundaberg.

 

I am guessing that the routing engine refused to route over this Pacific Highway bridge because it is tagged “construction” – but then again, the highway either side of it is similarly tagged?  Is “construction” upsetting the routing engine?

 

Can someone more confident with the impact of construction tagging please have a look at this and try and fix it?

 

thanks

 

Ian

I just merged 2 sets of unjoined nodes in that area that should fix the problem.

 

FYI Anyone with good knowledge of that area want to clean it up as it has lots of little segments joined together which is how this error has probably occurred.
