(also following on from Jon's message) some of the changes near me do 
seem a bit odd.


shows a removed on-road section (along a busy A road) that didn't quite 
link two bits of NCN 65 and a similar gap on NCN 656.  OSM fills in both 
gaps (see https://cycling.waymarkedtrails.org/#?map=14!54.2365!-1.2239 
). It actually seems reasonable to me to provide a contiguous route 
rather than assume the user has some sort of teleportation device.

Does anyone know how Sustrans expect these routes with gaps new and old 
to be used, or is it just them saying that "we can't be held responsible 
for what happens in the gaps"?

Best Regards,
