How to handle non-numbered State Highways

The PWD page for calicut [Calicut SH's] lists roads like "Old N.H.Road in Feroke" and "Mini Bye pass road from Meenchanda to West Hill" as state highways. These do not appear in the list of SH's [List]. How such highways are to be handled. Should it be added to a relation ? What ref tag to be used ?

Hi Manu, they are denotified NHs. Should we have different tag ? KPWD sometimes considers denotified NHs as SH -- Naveenpf (talk) 05:47, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
Hi Naveen, Most are denotified NH. But some like the "Mini Bye pass road from Meenchanda to West Hill" are roads undertaken under special schemes. These are major roads and needs to be shown as primary roads. I am of the opinion that we add the denotified NH roads under a single relation and other roads under their respecive relations (Like the byepass road I mensioned). After all they are classified as State Highways. Regarding the ref tag I am not sure; we may leave it blank or should we just use 'SH'. What is your take on this ? --Manuvarkey (talk) 07:49, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
We will keep reference as SH and in a separate relation; that is a good suggestion -- Naveenpf (talk) 08:41, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
