I wasn't talking about your roads Liz :) they seem to be pretty
reasonable 99% of the time ;) From what I can see is your work you seem
to go on the "everythings unclassified unless it's special" type
thinking, whereas a few of our newer mappers in SA seem to follow a
"everything remotely main is a primary" and as that flows down we end
up with every 4th road a secondary and every 2nd road a tertiary. Makes
a great rainbow, but not so useful as a street map.
