Hi Alan
I looks perfectly correct to me, you can access certain sections to
leave side streets. The section you were initially going into is tagged
as motor_vehicle=no, bus=yes, psv=yes.

There is nothing wrong with OSRM in this area.

If you are unsure it would be better to ask on talk-gb where you will
find local mappers who can explain the reasoning for the tagging.

Or try #osm-gb on irc.
