Hm. That's a bit bizarre. I can say for certainty that the stretch I've
tagged as one-way is so, and I'm pretty sure it's the end of the N68
because I was following signs on the way in, specifically with a view to
closing that section. The fact that a one-way section of an N-road
doesn't make sense didn't occur to me at the time, or I'd have paid more

I don't remember. :( The weekend was primarily about tourism, and
mapping was mostly an afterthought, so I didn't take any street-name
