We have seen the same here. If you consider that these are segment closures, it's working correctly. The question is if it's desirable.

You're right it's in the presentation. We know it's just the segments with the given IDs that are closed. So it's no surprise they didn't close the nodes in between automatically.

I don't quite understand what's making you get a route around the closure. Is it by approaching it enough, or by simply driving? Or difference livemap / client?

Noam, then the presentation should be changed to reflect this.

Jep Always close the feeding street or the exiting street.

For the Cape Argus, I'm not seeing a single closure on the client nor livemap, and both are quite happy routing me over roads that have been closed since midnight (6 hours ago).

I'm not venturing out there as it's absolute chaos at the start, though I've messaged a few Wazers I do see out there making their way to the start, asking if if they see any road closures.

I'm also not happy with the fact that crossing aren't handled as originally advertised. I'll just have to get it right next year, when hopefully I'm one of the 40,000 nuts out there.

Now this is very confusing. It was pointed out to me by another editor that the road closures are now appearing, but about 10 hours late, and I can see them in livemap from the finish, going 3/4 of the way round back to the start.

Maybe it needs the lack of traffic on the roads to kick in??

It will be interesting to see if the closure are removed at the listed times. If not, then I suspect a time zone conversion snafu.

Shall keep monitoring.

Update @12:40: Closures appear to be removed at the correct time, from what I can see from livemap.

Update @20:30: All closures have been removed. Looks as if it was just a late implementation, as the "Avoid traffic from the cycle tour" notification was only sent at 09:46, by which time the elite group, who left at 06:15 and took just over 2 and a half hours to complete the 109 km route had long since finished.

Many thanks to all at Waze Support involved. This process can only get better.

I think it is.

If you want to close the junctions, then just close the connecting streets.

But what if you can cross?
Then it will be impossible.

I think overall leaving it as it is is the easiest.
Btw, you know you don't have to do it street by street?
Just selecting a few extra streets isn't that a big job, I think.
