this is just a suggestion for something that might be a useful tidy-up job for an automated script…
In Northern Ireland, public roads are ‘adopted’ by Stormont’s DfI Roads Service (DfI Roads | nidirect) and given reference numbers of M, A, B, C or U.
On OSM, tagging for M, A and B class roads in Northern Ireland seems pretty consistent, complete and error free:
- A (green signs):
- A (black-on-white signs):
however, the numbers for C and U roads do not get put on roadsigns in NI.
So I believe the agreed-upon correct tagging scheme is:
However it looks to me like the majority of C roads in Northern Ireland have had the
ref= tag applied, not
Is this worth fixing en masse with a script?
