Thanks, I think I understand what you mean: The aerial imagery from bing is too old to be useful in mapping a recently built street. This is unfortunate, but not easily changeable – see below.

We cannot update the bing aerial images ourselves. See image-of-bing-is-very-old. You may enter your location at Bing/Priorities (new account needed) but that is just an idea. In the end: please just wait for bing updating.

In the meantime we have some other providers of aerial imagery which we are allowed to use: just look at the imagery menu in your editor – likely you will find e.g. Mapbox Sat there. If you are lucky it is newer.

But please do not use unallowed imagery, e.g. google's satellite imagery (for mapping / your edits / your additions). We are not allowed to use it, so you should not.

Last option if you cannot find an allowed up-to-date imagery source: Use another mapping technique (e.g. gps traces) to add the shape of a new road to our maps.

I think if users far, Microsoft is likely to ask us to update the maps in

@Ali Zangeneh: Sorry, I do not not understand. Could you please rephrase / use other words?
