Mapnik has a way to resolve both cases.
If you lodge a Trac job with (UK) URL examples of both cases I will investigate for next week's style update (just submitted this week's).

	Indeed. My question is: can they? :-)

	Right, but that's precisely the problem. It writes it three times when I
	really only want it written once.
	(The opposite problem is the very long road which is a single way. The
