MotorwayCheck is a Quality Assurance tool for finding potential problems with highway=motorways


The reports below list potential problems in the highway:motorways.

  • First comes a list with incorrect oneway tags (at least according to Map Features). true and false are regarded as valid although not listed in map features...
  • Then there is a list with ways that potentially have the wrong direction or are drawn doubly. To be exact it is a list where more than one motorway share the same end node.


  • Tag correctly
  • Merge ways
  • Use motorway_link

False positives

I don't know if it is intended to have more than one way for one direction (let's say per lane) but certainly it triggers an entry here in this report.


currently there are no up to date reports available
