Jindalee Qld - Unlock Request

Hi all, 

I've learned of the joys of editing and have been having a great time tidying up small details in my local area here in the western suburbs of Brisbane. Obviously being level 1 I don't have many permissions yet, rightfully so, I've been working on things like boundaries of local schools, parks etc. 

One thing I have come across that I can't fix however is my local servo, the carpark road (which I can edit) has been placed through the side of the servo instead of the driveway, I went to change the car park road to correctly reflect the servo however I can't edit the start and finish points as the connect to major roads (Curragundee & Yallambee Roads). If I could either have these unlocked for myself or have a more senior editor adjust the entry points, particularly on currangundi rd, it needs two entrances off that road and the one on Yallambee, then passing through the servo as it is now. 

Thanks for your help, I know it's pretty trivial and minor but I'm enjoying learning about the editing process and enjoying helping make my neighbourhood as spot on as possible! 

All the best,
Jordan :)

Hey Jordan,

You're already on a roll with unlock requests I see, but there's some even easier ways. Check out this video:

Finally, you can also join the Waze Australia Discord server and talk with editors in your state for unlocks and advice. Most of us sit around on this server and help out when we're online. :)

Hi all, 
Thank you for the unlock at the servo, i've updated the paths and it's ready to lock again! 

Also, thank you kindly for the video link, very interesting! I'll see you all on the Discord too! I feel like most of my edits are just pedantic but better to learn on less critical things than the local freeway right! :) 

All the best

Almost there! You've fallen for the trap every new editors gets caught in, but we're here to help. :D You've done a great job of adding the new segments and you even selected the correct road type. Top tip: each segment is connected to another via a "turn", so we need to enable and disable turns (represented by red and green arrows) to control flow between them.

Check out the below example:


 
See how the turn from Yallambee Rd into the servo is disabled? You'll need to enable this from each segment entering the servo. Have a crack at that and let us know if you need a hand. If you jump on Discord, we can chat in the #mentoring channel at ease.

Once you've sorted that out, check out the below youtube video to merge these segments together:

Too right, start easy and then work your way up!
