The new Queensferry Crossing opened this morning. There's an article
at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-41081556 with people
complaining that the new bridge doesn't appear in Google maps yet.
Although OS says they've added it to their MasterMap database, it's
not yet on e.g.
https://osmaps.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/55.99866,-3.40057,14 . It's also
not yet on Bing maps.
On OSM, the bridge is mostly there, but some of the link roads at the
north end are still marked as highway=construction. Does anyone have
enough local knowledge to be able to fix these up correctly? There's a
chance for a bit of publicity if OSM is the only mapping provider to
have the bridge in place on the day it opens.
