As a map user I always like maps that look ahead and show planned roadways,
not only those where you can already see the construction work going on.
This has the added value when you plan a trip, that you would be alerted to
possible problems (in case the local mappers missed the transition from
"planned" to "construction"). I would tend to suggest that we keep the
Proposed and Under Construction objects visualised with different
