Sounds like an idea.

Even better: When routed over an unnamed road, the client shows the next named road.

Yes, I agree. That is what I've been doing after struggling with that same issue a while ago.

Naming when Two Streets Meet at a Split Road

Postby trantjd » Tue Sep 14, 2010 2:02 am

I've got an update request at this intersection:

http://www.waze.com/cartouche/?zoom=7&l ... 1=52792541

The request is that, when coming from the south and turning left, the directions say to turn onto Tuckaway even though the driver will really be turning onto Springhaven. When coming from the north, it works just fine because the middle portion is named the same thing as the road the driver will turn onto.

It's a simple problem to understand but not so simple to solve. How do others get around this issue? I don't think that using aliases will solve the issue, but please correct me if I'm wrong. Do you create other roads that are just used for the turn directions? If so, which path will drivers use if they go straight across the split road?

Thanks!
