Waze Map Editing for Bahrain
*Waze Map Editor Link http://world.waze.com/editor/

1. Road Naming:
1.A. Road names must be properly capitalized
Bani otbah avenue -> Bani Otbah Avenue

1.B. You can add the Arabic names of streets too
After adding the English name of a street, click 'Apply'
Then click 'Edit', you'll see a link at the bottom that says "add alternate name", click it
Add the Arabic Name of the street and save

1.C. Don't depend on Google Maps for Street names, instead, use Bahrain Locator
http://www.bahrainlocator.gov.bh

1.D. Note the difference between 'Avenue' and 'Road'
An Avenue is larger than a Road
An Avenue can be a 'Primary Street' but a Road can't
An Avenue is translated as شارع
A Road is translated as طريق

2. Road Direction:
2.A. If the opposite lanes of a road are separated by a sidewalk, we draw the road as two opposite one-directional roads. If there is no sidewalk in the middle we draw the road as a single bi-directional line.

3. Road Type:
3.A. Road Types are derived from Bahrain Locator
http://www.bahrainlocator.gov.bh
Compare the existing road types in Waze and how they're drawn in Bahrain Locator to understand the relation.
