[Talk-GB] Confused over access...

Hi Stuart,

The bus=yes and psv=yes override the access=no to say only buses/public service vehicles can use the road.

The access=no says ignore the normal defaults for access on the road, and instead use the access values included in this object instead.

I hope that clarifies things.

Currently the bus lane around Preston Bus Station is coded this way, but my contractor isn’t treating it as a bus lane, and before I go and  hassle the contractor I thought I would check my understanding. I got the impression that access=no took everything out.
