There's a road near me which is blocked by long term roadworks so I've had to split it. But it would be better to have a correct road and a 'long term road block' hazard that the routing algorithms would take note of, which wouldn't time out but maybe turns up as a system error every week or so so it doesn't get forgotten?

That's why we have the forum and PMs so that we can communicate. We need to encourage all editors to make use of these facilities, regularly.
