R64:
TreSt: Should be GroSt.
Dea: Should be BraSt_E.
+X858838: Could be replaced by a visible point at S448.
+X856244: Could be replaced by a visible point at this road signed for Florisbad (allegedly S262, according to OSM).
+X363475: Could be replaced by a visible point at this road signed for New Tempe Airport (allegedly S1066, according to OSM).
R65:
You could break up a 45.38-mile stretch no visible points between N17 and R33 with a point at this road signed for Jericho Dam.
+X300334: Could be replaced by a visible point at the nearby intersection where R65 turns. The point could be called ToR33.
R66:
+X155345: Could be replaced by a visible point at D429.
+X318634: Could be replaced by a visible point at P298.
+X267392: Could be replaced by a visible point at D1897.
Mel: This point is not at an intersection. It could be moved two blocks south to Victoria Street or two blocks north to Downing Street.
+X831674: Could be replaced by a visible point at D255.
+X978612: Could be replaced by a visible point at D477.
+X339477: Could be replaced by a visible point at P323.
R67:
Consider adding a point at this road. The point could be labeled ToR61.
+X687518: Could be replaced by a visible point at DR12729.
+X325613: Could be replaced by a visible point at this road signed for Brakkloof.
R351: Wikipedia, OSM, and Google Maps say that R351 has a short concurrency with R67 south to here and then intersects R67 again here. The RDDA says that R351 only exists east of Whittlesea. As far as I can tell (there is very little Street View along the route.) R351 is only signed here, on a single sign at N6.
+X970047: Could be replaced by a visible point at MR649.
Sey: Should be MR703.
+X897684: Could be replaced by a visible point at DR2702.
You could break up a 41.12-mile stretch with no visible points by adding one at DR2055.
+X893987: Could be replaced by a visible point at DR2039.
BeaSt: Should be MR486 or RagRd.
+X378171: Could be replaced by a visible point at DR2024.
+X795796: Could be replaced by a visible point at this road previously signed for Shaw Park.
R68:
Gle: Should be BigSt.
+X921750: Could be replaced by a visible point at D471.
+X896032: Could be replaced by a visible point at this road signed for the Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift battlefields (allegedly P372 according to OSM).
P163, P164, P504, and P503: OSM has a hyphen between the second and third numbers of these roads (e.g., P16-3).
+X324668: Could be replaced by a visible point at P227.
R69:
We have the wrong western terminus for R69. It is signed turning left onto the bypass around Vryheid and was also signed along the bypass at R34 (before all the signs at that intersection disappeared). A sign at P34-4 confirms that R69 does not go into Vryheid.
P344: OSM has a hyphen between the second and third number of this road.
+X270351: Could be replaced by a visible point at this road signed for Hlobane (allegedly P268/P274, according to OSM).
+X662503: Could be replaced by s visible point at D29.

That bypass is officially 14A, so that's what I've mapped it as.

Updates to Highway Data / OH: OH-10 exit number change
« Last post by rickmastfan67 on Yesterday at 01:12:12 am »
3 -> ToOH83

They've stripped the exit number from that exit sometime between Aug '16 & Sep '18 per GSV.

Updates to Highway Data / OH: US-42 point recommendations
« Last post by rickmastfan67 on Yesterday at 01:05:56 am »
KoeAve or BenSt (between OH126 & ColAve), due to their connections over to I-75 Exit 12.

*OldUS42 -> ChiSt & recenter?  Only suggesting this if the point is currently not in use.

Updates to Highway Data / OH: OH-237 point suggestion
« Last post by rickmastfan67 on Yesterday at 12:52:12 am »
Would recommend a point @ McKinley Ave.  Connects up to I-90 Exit 164.  While there's no 'TO I-90' signage there due to a truck prohibition, it's still a logical access road for car traffic up to I-90 there.

It's close to the current 'HogLn' point.

I was surprised by the highway density within London as opposed to so many U.S. cities where highways are routed around or co-routed through cities (except I guess Kentucky!).
When the roads were first numbered, 101 years ago, the counties/boroughs maintained everything and classification was about how much money they'd get from the national government to look after them (Class I 'A' roads getting more per mile than Class II 'B' roads which in turn get more than other roads - and it's still somewhat the case, though isn't quite the case anymore). As such a very large and dense network formed across the country*, and continued to do so after a limited amount were 'trunked' (ie national government took over the maintenance and improvement of).

The trunk road network got greatly reduced (about half went) in the early 2000s, and now it looks like this (England-only as Wales and Scotland have their own, regional, networks that didn't go through the pareing that UK-governed England's didn't). The Red Route network (map) that TfL maintain, instead of the boroughs, is London's state-equivalent road network (it's a bit bigger than the former trunk road network inside the boundaries, though lacks the long-distance motorways that enter the regions' borders).

The only large scale declassifying of roads in any English urban area is the 'Ring of Steel' declassifying of roads in the square mile of the City of London to supposedly confuse the IRA by removing road numbers (ironically almost returning the City to its initial state of having no classified roads - something which soon changed). Even large-scale urban downgrades are rare - Winchester is noteable for getting rid of its non-peripheral A roads (they became B roads and remain a dense network) when the M3 opened.

*Even when you consider that England is nearly as densely populated (1,134.4/sq mi) as New Jersey (1,263.0/sq mi) - the densest state, and has about 1.5 times (57m) the population of California (39m), the most populated state.
