Possible errors/thing needing verification

Feel free to report anything you notice that is wrong or incomplete. This should help those able to do so to check and improve relevant sections.

  • National Cycle Route 81 passes through the city (relation 90999 Relation 90999 (XML, Potlatch2, iD, JOSM, history, analyze, manage, gpx)), but is rather incomplete. The Sustrans site suggests it cuts across the playing field at Newbridge, but the signs on the bit I added at the weekend indicate it goes along Crowther Road then left into Hordern Road instead. --EdLoach 11:31, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

20th July 2008 - LUGRadio Live One Hour Micro-Map

At the end of LUGRadio Live, twelve people went out to map as much as they could between 17:00 and 18:00. Three people in cars, one on bike, the rest walked. Areas concentrated on were just outside the ringroad, although some surveyed where there were known to be errors inside the ringroad. See the traces.
