The problem here is who is going to compile the feed, they are published by very many different highway authorities. I assume most publish these on their websites which local mappers obviously can and do check.

The Ramblers Association do receive notifications which are sent to the local area. I don't know if they are also sent to Central Office, but will find out.

As far as I am aware  Ramblers areas are organized along highway authority boundaries. An area can contain more than one Highway Authority.
