Hi all,

A success story:

A few months ago I spotted an edit where a company employee was moving
height restriction data from nodes to ways. This in itself is not wrong but
it could lead to errors if rushed (as it was in this case). It also felt
like editing for the routing engine.

I investigated and found that the routing engine was Open route service. I
therefore submitted a request:

> Would it be possible to make Openrouteservice understand height
restrictions mapped on nodes [1] in the same way that it understands
barriers mapped on nodes [2].

Today I was informed that this change would be made :-). This will save the
company employee time and reduce the risk that errors are introduced in to

[1] https://openrouteservice.org/directions?n1=52.285527&n2=-1.5
[2] https://openrouteservice.org/directions?n1=52.28235&n2=-1.59

Best regards,
