What does this represent?

I'm not totally sure, but I believe that dotted/dashed lines signify an alternate name. So Orange dashed would be a No Name alternate name, which can likely be deleted as it serves no purpose.

Hmmm,

I have checked out another example of this, as far as I can see, the segment has not got any alt names. :?

The "St" in "St Davids Dr" should have a full stop - i.e. "St. Davids Drive".

There's a long-ongoing issue with the Text-To-Speech system where it's supposed to pronounce this as Saint, but sometimes decides to pronounce it as Street. :evil:

Current UK thinking is that we should still be putting "Saint" as "St." and hoping that HQ can sort out the TTS problem properly.

[EDIT] The Scottish are a devout folk - you'll probably have lots of "Saints" around. :lol:

I can't see the details on the world server, but I do see the dashed line. Tim? :)

FYI, this segment needs to be fixed. It makes a "loop" but it's a single segment which wraps back on itself with only a single junction. It should be straightened out and made into multiple segments. Also, why are there so many restricted turns on the roundabout there?

Ah-hah! That makes sense. Well spotted. :)

Also, looking back at my earlier screenshot, that street was also a "St" street name.

Cheers!

Yeah, I noticed that, there are lots of segments like this around my local area. I intended to start a project to clean them all up.

The roundabout you mention, I think that was a failed use of the WME Junction Fixer script on that node. Sorry about that, I'll tidy it up just now....

This is an undocumented feature (easter egg) for UK editors to indicate that the road names have incorrect or missing abbreviations. As Iain correctly pointed out, the dot was missing from "St".

I considered if and how I would support this worldwide, but decided it would be a nightmare to maintain.
If anyone wants to make this work for their own country, feel free to edit the code ;)

Suddenly the directionality one-way doesn't show if the segments isn't marked. Is this a bug with the highlighter or do other editors have the same problem?

It's an editor problem - nothing to do with the script.

Yes, thanks!

I just found it has been reported already. Given the different scripts I've installed I usually track them down first.
