Is the 'layer=*' tagged correctly???

The item 'on top' should have a layer tag that is greater than the 
underlying feature.

Usually the river/stream has no layer tag .. meaning it defaults to layer=0.

The bridge should then be tagged layer=1.


A tunnel is not a bridge.

To me,

a tunnel has earth/rock on top of it.

a bridge has no earth/rock immediately under it. (Yes a bridge can be 
made out of rock - but that then is the bridge structure so not under 
neath the bridge itself).
