First post here, so hopefully this has gone to the right place!

When I added the tunnels on the A538 under the runway at Manchester Airport, 
I basically drew them in roughly as a constant-ish radius curve. That's 
certainly what they feel like to drive through. I can't see that too many 
people would be losing sleep if there a few metres out.

It obviously gets a little more complex if there's junctions and curves in 
different directions, but I still agree that it's best initially if we can 
get it on the map, then worry about the precise route.
