You've added "network=Nation Rail" on https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/3711588220/history ; presumably this should be "National Rail". Isn't this also a duplicate of https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/296406307/history ?

Hi, did you survey the Clyde Arc before you made the change to oneway=yes? Because the previous changeset said it was two parallel two way roads: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/4287346/history

Hi
I'd appreciate a response to my private mail question:
What is the source of the photographs you used to map these nationwide phone boxes?

Thanks

Yeah, if it's not a dock then the coastline should continue into the harbour. I've left the landuse=harbour area where it is, but also added the coastline around it.

If it's not open then I'd suggest using landuse=construction and construction:amenity=school instead, so it doesn't appear on the map as an active school.

You probably need to reload the page in order to flush the tile cache; it's normally pretty fast (minutes rather than hours).

Given that the nodes of the way defining Passage Road were shared with those of the South West Coast Path, I had assumed that it would have been a duplication to also mark Passage Road for foot access, but I have just done so.

Done. Still not really quite right though, as access=no means there is no LEGAL right of access, whereas in this case the legal right remains but you can't physically access it.
