I can’t see any obvious reasons for why it can’t just go straight between the start and end points. Rather than just fixing this by re-editing the ways I’d really like to know the reason(s) for this failure.
Probably so. Unbelievable that I fell for this again. Not the first time, but hopefully you learn from your mistakes. Thanks for the help and Captain Obvious for fixing the problem. Have a nice weekend! http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/52893906
