Ed, hi

Thanks. For info, Essex County Council have told me that they “...can confirm that the NAR3 is still being worked on and is planned to be open before the P&R is open”. As you are aware, the P&R service is due to start 13th April, a week on Monday.

Given the short time before it is opening, does anyone object that I have marked the road as a standard tertiary highway? I need it to be available for routing in our system, as the P&R bus does NOT go along Boxted Road, but equally I don’t want to inconvenience anyone else by having “wrong” data in OSM.

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:

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!
