In the case mentioned earlier by you, where Waze was asking you to take three Right Turns.

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

They are purely for local traffic to enter and exit. For now, if the segment does not have any speed data, delete it. We can come back at a point in time when Delhi is sufficiently mapped, and draw them wherever needed.

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 :)

Why would you want to delete Service Alleys ? Try to determine the POI in which these are situated, and map them if they satisfy the guidelines.

Split the segments and make them two directional again. Do not combine roads or split them without thinking twice. Segments have tons of data stored in them, and when you delete a segment, routing becomes wonky.

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?
