Ah, the curse of NearMap being too good.

The current solution I've seen near Brisbane is "do whatever you prefer", which is why several paths flip back and forwards between footway and cycleway depending on who traced each section :-\ Given that I don't know which is appropriate, I haven't felt like retagging my many kilometres of inter-connected footways or someone else's many kilometres of inter-connected cycleway - especially since they may have had more than just the imagery to go on.

I hope no-one wants to do bicycle routing over those paths.
