Bad directions - how do I force them to update?

How do I get openstreetmap, and anyone that uses it’s data, to update directions.
I already put the missing roads in, and connected them to the main roads. But so far the directions haven’t changed.

It has people stopping in the middle of a one way street with no way to exit.

OSRM & the other inbuilt routers usually take ~a week to update, but we have no control over when other routers that use OSM (OSMAnd etc) update their maps, & then when individual people update the maps in their phones, or whatever they use to navigate.


It seems that the routing is now working as expected?

It takes time for the changes to work thru,

Valhalla the quickest with few days,
GraphHopper like a week or more,
OSRM, seems to be the slowest even random.

Each time mapping a new ‘complex’ roundabout I run a series of routing tests on these 3 build in the OSM map to check on turn restrictions, directions, destinations for car and bike. Valhalla gives positively weird results sometimes a long detour to get to the target.
