I downloaded the routable maps from

I am trying to create a route that involves an underpass (a busway under a city).

The online OSM viewer shows the tunnel perfectly.

The tunnel does not appear in these maps - the road just ends at the entry to the tunnel.

How to I overcome this problem?

Can you provide a link to the tunnel in OSM so that we can have a look at the tags?

Yes: here you go.

It's the South East Busway tunnel.

direct data link (I hope that is the correct object)

Yes, that's the correct object. Unfortunately I can't add an image to this post, but in BaseCamp it looks like the road just ends at the beginning and entry to the two short tunnels.

It's only for buses right? access = no highway = unclassified motor_vehicle = no name = South East Busway psv = permissive tunnel = yes

Tunnels that are not accessible for 'normal' traffic (car, bicycle, foot) are not rendered on these maps. See

# Hide unaccessible tunnels

highway= & tunnel=yes & (access=private|access=no) & foot!= & bicycle!=* {delete highway;delete junction}
