[Talk-GB] Any mappers in Colchester who can help map a road?

It isn’t open yet (at least when I last checked) – I’ve left the A12
where the park and ride is being built to the north of J28 and
headed south to see if it was open. I’ve made a note where I amended
the section to the south that was open (and still roadworks) when I
last drove through:

rs=N> &layers=N


Still closed yesterday according to this story in our local paper


and a temporary route will be used until the over-running roadworks
is completed.


I subscribe to the local paper as well as follow them and a number
of their reporters on Twitter, so when it does open I’ll go up there
and get a GPS trace as I did the day J28 first opened (although
anyone else local is welcome to try and get there first…)

Are there any mappers in Colchester who could survey the new
Northern Approach Road phase 3 to the east and south of the old
Severalls Hospital? The proposed alignment is shown on OSM, but
Google has it differently at the western end, and also shows a set
of roads south of Colchester Rugby Club (NW of Mill Road, opposite
Brinkley Grove Road) that are not on OSM.

Essex County Council need me to route a bus along it, so a) I
understand from them that it is open and no longer under
construction and will annotate OSM accordingly, and b) I am going to
go with the alignment shown for the time being as it seems to align
to a route map that I have been sent.

But clearly surveyed data would be better if we can get it, please!
