Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hello all,

I want to extract all types of roads of an area. But whenever I am trying to export them, it shows the following error:

This site can’t be reached

The web page at http://api.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/map?bbox=77.2312,28.5188,77.3184,28.5645 might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address. ERR_INVALID_RESPONSE

Could anyone please tell me why it is showing this error? Is it server problem or I need to go to some new website of OSM. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks & Regards Akanksha

Please do not use the editing API for such downloads, as the name says it is mainly intended for editing.

To export a subset of OSM data for a area you should either use an extract of the area in question and filter to obtain (please have a look at the wiki for descriptions of the many tools available) the data that you want or, if the area in question is not too large, use the Overpass API.
