I think our primary source is OSM, isn't it?
I think that by "primary sources", Duke87 means sources direct from the government agencies responsible for the highways -- or as close as we can get to that.
OSM itself can be pretty unreliable in places, Manitoba being a notable example.

but I can't check it against primary sources

I think our primary source is OSM, isn't it?

I'm using the academic definition of "primary source" here - i.e. the source material for the facts, not a second-hand account of them.

So no, OSM is not a primary source, it is a secondary source. An official DOT map is a primary source since it's published by the agency that maintains the roads. An official route log is also a primary source for the same reason. And while GMSV is technically a secondary source, we trust that their pictures of signs posted in the field (the signs themselves are primary sources) are not altered so as to change what they say.

Am I right that
- ausm - Australia Motorways
- asiahr - UNESCAP / ASEAN Asian Highways (for review)
- nzlsh - New Zealand State Highways

are ready for review?

I could do nzlsh since I already reviewed nzlmot 2 years ago.
Anyone interested in ausm or asiahr?

You'll also want to do the tourist routes at the same time when looking at NZ.

Australia's main routes (M, A, NH) are ready for review.

Japan is after Italy in my regions to clean up.

The Asian Highways I'll just go through at some point (v low priority) as no one else is bothered with them.

It's missing on the list though ;)

NH? You mean ausn? And ausnb? Please gimme some chocolate first :P However, I'm also happy if anyone else wants to review one or all Australian systems. I think that I won't do it "soon" - not in 2019.

Ok, nzlsh is mine but Australian systems are still t.b.d. - too much chocolate at once makes you fat :D

I'll go ahead and take on review of Australia - should certainly be able to have that done before year's end.
