Wow, what a changeset!

Bing was 2010-2012. The Maxar Premium seems the most recent.

Whatever the case with the buildings, the roads tend to be used as 
anchors for many features. I guess the opinion I am looking for is that 
if a formal source can't be found/used, will my GPS run tomorrow (plus 
the existing traces) be acceptable? I can make a point driving a set 
centre distance but errors will still happen. The current trace/way 
error is in the region of 8-20m.

Being Sunday too the dashcam view wont be too obscured by parked cars. 
Also worth a walk to see if any businesses are closed.
