Not sure what you mean by "connecting to" here. Based on your having mentioned a graph connection, I interpreted that as using the same coords as existing NS NS1 CobRd. That, I can't get behind; I won't put a waypoint off of the road itself just to get a graph connection.

That makes sense. It is pretty far away from the bypass. Certainly far enough away that it doesn't demand a graph connection (see below).

and then continuing northward to join NS 101 at 1F. This sign makes it pretty clear that Cobequid Rd acts as the NS 1 exit from the Bypass.
I wanna leave this pretty much as-is, with one point for 1F/1K that 1PPI's all three routes together.
WRT a CobRd point on the bypass, I can see some merit to that. I may have just considered it 1PPI when first drafting the route, but OTOH, adding a point at the offramp could pull the bypass away from the 101/102 interchange in mapview.

The 1PPI seems adequate for travels in a NW-to-SE direction, but I mostly paid attention to the SE-to-NW movements, which still seem too complicated for one point IMO. If there's a CobRd (or NS 1) point on the bypass, adding it at the gore point would be appropriate.

On another note, should I reverse point order and make BedByp E-W? It functions as kind of an extension/bypass of the ends of two E-W corridors,  NS101/1 & NS7.

That would be more consistent, but I don't have a strong opinion.

(On that note, should it maybe be ON ONQEW for consistency?)

Oscar, did you have any comments re the BC and SK routes?

Don Valley Pkwy
  • Recommend moving DanAve to the overpass to match what was done at QueSt and DunSt

2) Looking like that shouldn't truly be changed.  Seems that while it's access to the DVP from Danforth Ave (or should it be Bloor Street? Not sure where the name swap officially happens.), it seems to have it's own road name of 'Royal Drive'.  So, maybe leave location as-is and relabel as 'RoyDr'?

So, yeah, it does indeed look like the ramp really does have the name of Royal Drive.

More recently, this stretch of road was renamed Royal Drive for the October 1951 visit of Princess Elizabeth to Toronto.

It's a very interesting read.

So, yeah....
DanAve -> RoyDr (& no location change)

Anyways, just submitted all the Ontario tweaks to the routes that are currently on the site.

Oscar, did you have any comments re the BC and SK routes?

Changes to SK (Ring Road, and corresponding changes to SK 6) are in my local copy. I agree with keeping the part between SK1/11 and LewDr, as a divided highway connector to SK1/11.

Changes recommended in BC (Golden Ears, and Knight St), to remove the non-freeway portions, also in my local copy.
