I get extremely good correlation all the way with the exception of the new Holbrook by-pass.  I was wondering if we should get some local confirmation before making the changes to the map as some other local streets are affected?

It so happens that I did some traces of the bypass almost 2 weeks ago (at the start of my holidays) including ramps, and will be going back through Holbrook tomorrow morning (on the way home from holidays) to get details of some of the other local street closures. (I was going to stay in Holbrook tonight, but only got as far as Albury before I decided to stop for the night.)

I had originally added the bypass as highway=construction, source=extrapolation (or something similar), once the bypass was opened no-one bothered to check the route when it was changed to highway=motorway - including adding non-existent bridges over roads (they have either been closed, or the road actually doesn't cross it).

I was also going to ask about the route numbers for the Hume Hwy/Freeway. In NSW it is M31 all the way (the older A31 signs between Albury and Gundagai have been replaced by M31.) In Victoria, most of the signs have M31 in the National Highway shield, but some newer signs have just M31 (no shield). Some newer signs on M39 have also had the shield removed. Is it safe to remove the network=NH tags from these routes?
