We now need to find out what Waze plans to do with the "Road Closed" report type just added to the app in the iOS beta.

This and other things are what I meant by "there must be very strict controls."

I think this would be useful but there must be very strict controls around it. Can you imagine how much Waze would suck if just 1 or 2 people in a high volume freeway decide to post a road closed causing Waze to try to reroute people off the freeway for hours?

Closed Road while Road works

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Mon Sep 10, 2012 10:42 pm

I usually do a disconnect or depending on the situation, just delete the road being changed especially if it is not going to exist in the future either. I don't rely on turn restrictions very often because they are not foolproof an Waze can and does route through them if it calculates a lower penalty for doing so.

If they are long-terms closures, the roads can be disconnected in the editor. See the guidelines in the wiki for more, too.
