Hello again Nemanja

I response to your question, based on my experience, I still have the view that unnamed roads in South Australia are not intended for public access. Therefore, if mapped, they should be tagged as access=private. I don't think there would be any exceptions but, if there are, individual mappers who survey such areas could later amend the access tags and/or add names as appropriate.  

If the roads actually exist then I have no problem with mapping them. My particular concern is that failing to tag them as private could endanger lives and livelihoods. 

Thanks for your diligence in following up this issue

Michael Cleary

Perhaps we need to stop updating, reset and look at how to improve the existing edits. An initial suggestion could be to set all new roads to private, add a fixme and perhaps organise a map-roulette of these? Of the ten edits I sampled, all ten appeared to be private driveways on private property.
