Aye aye cap'n. But I have to ask. When would it be absolutely required, do you think?

I was considering deleting them if they have no access since they would not be consequential to routing.

As for double-line roads, I only change them if they are relatively short and have a lot of unrestricted junctions as per best practice guidelines. Maybe I should narrow my parameters a lot more? I do consider it a lot before changing them but I guess I just got to think a lot more eh :)

Service Road

Also often known as a frontage road.

A smaller street found running alongside a limited access highway or other primary street.
Service roads allow local traffic to enter and exit driveways, parking lots, and intersecting streets without congesting thoroughfare traffic.
(NOTE: Service Roads should NOT be confused with what is often called a "service alley". Service Roads will not prevent routing.)

We need to maintain Service Roads, as they are a means to enter/exit major/minor Highways.



Oh man, I've had that so horrible wrong. Thanks for clearing that up. So, service alleys - can they be deleted?

Exactly. Instead of a u-turn, it asks me to take three right turns until I get back to the original road going the right direction. Of course, it wasn't a problem when this was a double line road.

Since service roads are almost never accessed, should one keep them around or get rid of them?

And also, if I may digress just a bit, I'm having a little trouble figuring out how to authorise U-turns on single two-way roads. All turns seem to be authorised at the junction but when I need to take a u-turn, Waze tells me to take a right and then another right and then right again.

For example, the junction in question is in this permalink: https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=8&l ... =171690759

Well done, Darryl! That's a pretty good system. I think we do all need to be on the same page to make a more comprehensive and consistent map of our country. I'll get to changing the ring-roads to minor highways and connecting roads as primary streets as a start.

This thread is just pure brilliance. :)

Cheers!

The problem mentioned above, I have seen as well, did not know that it was because of inaccurate GPS points!!! I will keep the two one way roads locked, to avoid turning them to two-way roads!


I abosultely feel the same.. No matter if the GPS on phones is good or not..someday it will be good and then we will have to rework it all.

Agreed. Already started combining two one way roads into one in Pune Area.

Is there a way to combine these roads in one road??
To Separate 2 one way roads we have a Option in Edit panel, is there anything similar for combining into one? or do we have to do it manually?

Delete one and turn the other to two-way. There is no combine option!

And don't forget to create appropriate turn restrictions at junctions where there isn't a gap in the road divider!
