Wow, that wasn't that bad last time i looked though there.

They haven't even bothered to put in oneway tags and in at least one
intersection, have created ways for every direction except straight through
the intersection!

Has anyone contacted them yet?  If no-one beats me to it, i'll try and and
do some correcting around there tonight.
