solution for "U turn restriction" on two way road mentioned above.

unfortunately Locking the road doesn't change anything. any user driven from that road, or AM has access to unlock it. also it can be edited in locked state.

Unfortunately this is not problem Only in Kolkata... almost all over the India. :( :( :oops:

I agree increasing the waze users is only way to get waze thing going...

yes we need to restrict the turns, and then enable only allowed turns.. other wise U turn becomes enabled.

This happens only because the combined width of the two directions of the road isn't enough for the average phone GPS to differentiate between them. You can see this for yourself by going to the map editing page ('Cartouche') and turning on the 'GPS Points' layer to view the tracks along a city street that has been created as two one-way roads. For most such roads that I have reviewed, almost all tracks in both directions appear along one side/direction and the other 'road' is practically free of GPS tracks.


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

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?

good idea...

I agree editing splitted (two one way ) road is bit of the pain, but I think its better for now atleast, other wise waze sometimes behaving crezzu due to left hand side drive in India.

but if every one wants to go with Combining them in one road... I am ok with it.
its really gr8 to have standards defined for Indian roads too.

Thanks.

Waze does prefer to route through primary roads, depending on the total distance of your route. There is a Forum thread explaining it. I'll get you a link to it Paritosh.

The Western Express Highway is set up as Freeway. I don't know if that is correct or not.

I'm a bit reluctant on setting up S.V. Road as Primary Street because then Waze would prefer routing via S.V. Road which for most hours of the day, is crowded with moderate traffic.

Had a doubt. Would it be correct to set the road type of S.V. Road across Mumbai as 'Primary Street'? Currently it is set as 'Freeway' which I think is definitely not the type it is supposed to be.

Also is it like Waze would route more through Primary Streets than normal Streets?

You know what's funny about BRTs? the Delhi Government makes 'Bus RAPID Transit' lanes and then puts speed breakers in them! HA! Freaking genius.
