Thanks for the pointer Dan but I see

 "As OSM data is often used offline (and therefore may be several months
old), only tag construction sites (particularly roads and railroads) if
they are planned to be closed for at least six to nine months. Don't use
construction=* to tag short-term closures (e.g. a road closed over a
weekend to replace a sewer pipe); consider using conditional restrictions

Which basically equates to "The fact some people use out of date data, we
all should."

It's this kind of 'logic' that really does point to the failings of those
implementing the OSM project.
