Thanks. It makes sense, but if we think in terms of width, does it make
to map the south side of Princes Street?

I certainly agree with you here. We don't want to get into the habit of

Agree, this works well for George Street, and should be the normal.

As Princes Street seems to be an isolated case in town (wide pavement
with the main roads rendered as restricted access), would you agree if
we re-map Leith Street (as the mapping of the pavement has already been
extended a bit there as well) and the south side of Princes Street with
the same kind of conventions used for George Street?

Thanks a lot for your feedback here.
