I tagged a abandoned motorway link together with a bridge. The road has, as the bridge, been abandoned and has nt been demolished. Its just lying there collecting dust. Keep right keeps marking it as faulty. What to do ?

What tags have you added so far? What errors does keepright complain about? Give us a link to your way.

To make it easier, here is the way and this is the keepright link.

(the easiest way to create links like this on a comment is probably to add an answer and then convert it to a comment)

I would chhange the highway=motorway_link to highway=abandoned. Also, the oneway-tag is redundant. You can further change the ref to old_ref. But apart from that it looks ok. Does keepright complain, that the highway is not connected to anything else on the map? Then you can ignore this error.

I would keep it as highway=motorway_link but add disused=yes and perhaps access=no if it's closed.

Hi Paul thanks, changing motorway_link made the way praktical invisible. I changed it back again and didnt know disused=yes but added it. Greetz Hendrik
