[talk-au] Way errors in Quilpie Qld

I am currently near this nice quiet place and am leaving shortly.
I note that there is a fairly large discrepancy between some of the
roads and the public GPS traces. The main E-W highway is also split, but
not in OSM. Imagery and GPS traces are however close.
I am very reluctant to move ways as I really don't have a good reference
source. I understand that Qld Globe cadastral data is far more accurate
than their roads, and OSM has a waiver to use. It isn't however a non
custom ID editor layer?
Would anyone with the knowledge as to how be interested in
checking/realigning the streets? (about 4x5 blocks) I mighty drive up
and down all the streets here (both directions - 2x GPS units) as I
leave, as an additional check..
Quilpie is the town (council) that complained about Eromanga being in
the wrong place on GM. Apparently they have signs around here suggesting
one should ignore G based GPS navigation information!
The town features are also a bit messy. Duplication of points vs area.
Fixing the way alignment first though might be a good idea.
