Hi Yanis,
YanisKyr wrote:Hi guys, I believe the ramp connection should be moved a good few hundred meters earlier. The actual 4th lane/exit lane is ongoing from J5 therefore also beneficial for drivers to choose the correct lane early. However the main reason is that the app waits until the "exit left", to give the next crucial direction (keep right/left) which comes at this point http://bit.ly/2aHabEK - only 100m before the actual split.

If it wasn't for the timing of the next instruction, I'd say that the positioning of the ramp instruction is OK, although the M50 junctions are a bit odd in that there's a continuous lane joining all entry and exit tamps.

Anyway, I don't see much harm in moving the ramp connection back a bit. I'm not sure about moving it a few hundred metres though maybe 100m or 200m at most.

I've lowered the locks around here (and on many other parts of the M50) to L3.

Good stuff, thanks David. I'll make the change now, and see how it works out. Using that junction often lately :)
