Hi John,

Happy to know someone is taking care of fixing Africa highways.  FWIW,
we use osmlint [0] to detect common geometry errors, these detected
errors are then fed into to-fix [1].  Some of the detectors are
related to highways [2].

Happy to support people or teams in Africa if this is worthwhile to do.
