It's likely that the tiles at higher zoom levels just haven't been updated yet - there's a detailed description of what's happening here.

Not all zoom levels are rendered instantly/simultaneously, so you just have to wait (and maybe also reload the page in your web browser to get the updated tile).

I believe the new links I am adding is going to data layer and not to openstreetmap layer that is why the link disappears. How to make the links go to osm layer?

moe2, please give us a permalink to that place so we can investigate about any error in tagging.

These things seem ok, just something went wrong with rendering. Until everything is ok on data layer, don't worry about rendering. It will get rendered eventually. You may want to read to get an idea about road classifications in osm. Roads you have drawn seem to be something else than _link roads.

I'm not sure why you're asking the same question repeatedly - gnurk's answer (wait a bit and it'll get rendered) is correct, as is my comment on the question (it's been asked before). If you follow the link in that comment it tells you exactly what's happening, and what to do if you don't want to wait a bit.

I just followed the advice in that link and marked the tiles at your link at a selection of zoom levels as dirty, and sure enough as expected they display just fine now.

One thought - if you'd like more help perhaps try asking on the #OSM IRC channel? That way you'd be able to ask people questions in real time, and we might be able to better understand what the issue is. If you've not used IRC before don't worry - on the wiki page there's a link just after it says "You can chat on the web" - just click that, choose a nickname and login.

Also - there seem to be a number of "duplicate ways" there without tags on them that look a bit wrong.
