Great!  Thanks Ervin!  Looking at the track data that you added, I realized
it was just a very short distance to the bridge and junction to the old
road!!  missed it by a few hundred meters na lang pala!

I looked at Google Maps, looks like our Openstreetmap edits are more
up-to-date.  Now I wonder how Google got their road traces...
