That was one of the few feature requests I never implemented, as it wasn't quite as easy to implement properly as it had first seemed.

Bummer.
We've got a LOT of video detection cameras and traffic monitoring cameras and they are always being reported. Fortunately, most of the editors seem to be aware and very, very few get approved unless they are legitimate, but I like keeping the map cleaned up.

I believe JNF makes them visible at a wider zoom (not the widest, but only one step in)

This is a great script, and I love the functionality of the [ROADWORKS] URs. I like it so much I have suggested it be used to document when roads are reported to Waze to be closed for a emergency/construction/event type closures using the spreadsheet Waze provided for closing roads. When a road is known to be closed for a period we in the USA and any other country with this system in place can provide the details of the closure and the segments to be closed to Waze via a spreadsheet. Waze then implements the closure in the livemap/client app similar to if a user reported the closure through the app, with the candy bar roads and barricade icons. The same is true worldwide when there are road closure due to a mega event.

We have discovered that there is no way to know if a closure has already been reported to Waze though without having a champ with access to the request list sift through the requests looking to see if this one is on the list yet or not. Otherwise we end up duplicating efforts and reporting the same road multiple times. In WME there is no indicator if a closure has been reported, which would be helpful to editors working on URs in the area as well.

Another caveat of the system is that the segments may not be edited during the closure. The closures are implemented by segment ID and Junction ID, any edits which change the junction and segment IDs will circumvent the closure. For this reason Waze has asked that any segments reported to them for closure be locked as high as possible to prevent edits till after the closure ends.

For these two reasons we have started using URs to document the closure reports in WME, and for now we are doing that with the [ROADWORKS] tag. However this is not truly the intent of this feature, as these don't always have anything to do with actual road construction. I am asking if you would be willing to create one or two new tag filters with associated icons to be used for these closure reports. One would be [CLOSURE] it could have a barricade icon Image, the second if no too much trouble could be called [EVENT] and have say a balloon or other event type icon.

I will add a request to have [CONSTRUCTION] give the same icon as roadworks, just as an Americanized version of it.

Thanks for the filter suggestions, I'll work on those when I get back home at the weekend.

I don't know if anyone has suggested or asked if it would be possible or easy to add this feature:

Somewhat similar to the mouse-over on URs showing the info, it sure would be nice if mouse over a restricted segment could optionally display the info on the restrictions and the comments on the restrictions.

3.13 includes the features requested by PesachZ, sketch and bz2012, namely:

  • custom markers for URs tagged as [CONSTRUCTION], [CLOSURE] or [EVENT]
  • infobox popup when a restricted segment is highlighted

Both these new features are optional and can be disabled via the Misc tab.

Note: the restrictions popup doesn't (yet) display any comments - given the size of the box I didn't want to make it any larger than it may already get on segments with multiple restrictions, so for now it just displays the essentials...

It may just be a publishing delay but the Google Chrome Webstore is still showing v3.12
