Hello everyone,

As we promised, we came with an updated regarding the relations status for Trans-Canada Highway. Until now we managed to resolve the broken relations from Alberta, British Columbia and Manitoba (5 broken relations fixed).  You can see in the wiki page all the updates that we have made (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Canada/Trans-Canada_Highway ).

Also, in the near future  we intend to resolve the rest of the broken relations.  At the end of this task  we will update the super relation (ID 1307243) with information about geometry and new tags (as we discussed in the  previous emails).

If anyone wants to fix the other broken relations are welcome to help.

We will come back with un update for the rest of the broken relations.

Regards,
Olivia

Hello,
  Regarding our proposal for Trans-Canada Highway, we came with the Wiki page on OSM, as we promised, where we listed all the relations that  make up the Trans-Canada Highway. Also, we inserted a status column where all of you can see the situation of every relation, whether it is broken or not. Here is the link to the Wiki page: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Canada/Trans-Canada_Highway .  Also, we want to ask you if any of you are willing to help us fix the broken relations and keep the wiki page updated with the current status? After we collect some feedback from you, we want to get involved in correcting the broken relations and we will send you an update of our progress.
   As we have discussed in the other mails, we want to update Trans-Canada Highway (ID 1307243). This will not affect the currently existing routes, but it will have the same geometry and the following tags:
                                   type=route
                      route=road
                                   name=Trans-Canada Highway
                                   name:fr=Route Transcanadienne - we propose this new tag for the route name (as we seen that is used only for the way) due to the Francophone provinces through which this new route passes.


Regards,
Olivia

Hello,

Thank you for your feedback, it has been very helpful. In relation to that we come with another proposal: to update the super relation (https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1307243)  from the east to west of Canada, that includes all the routes and has the folowing tags:
type=route
route=road
               name=Trans-Canada Highway
name:fr=Route Transcanadienne - we propose this new tag for the route name (as we seen that is used only for the way) due to the Francophone provinces through which this new route passes

Regarding the way name tag and the ref we won't make any changes. Also, for the route type (motorway, trunk, primary, secondary, teriary) we will ask for your advice for specific cases.

For the broken relations of Trans-Canada Highway we will create a wiki page on OSM where we will describe each route and put a status of the relation and a comment box for all the members from our community to see and maybe help us to fix this problem.

We will come back with un update for the wiki page.

Regards,
Olivia Robu
