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

I'm referring to this route planning result: https://www.openstreetmap.org/directions?engine=fossgis_osrm_foot&route=54.46938%2C9.09168%3B54.46745%2C9.09299#map=18/54.46915/9.09350

In the south of the housing area where the start point is there is an abandoned railway - of which a part was converted to a path. I did the according change in OSM (Way: 704741047) and added the connection path (Way: 704741048) between the housing area and the new path (former railway). However this seems not to be considered for route planning. I'm new to OSM, did I do something wrong connecting the ways?

Hi, I tested your route with the routing plugin of JOSM and it produced the route as expected. So there is nothing wrong with your mapping. It maybe that the router you used does not have up to date data or is lacking in its performance.

Okay, I assumed since the changes are immediately displayed on openstreetmap.org it will also directly be reflected in the routing used there. This seems not to be the case. Thanks for your response!

Hi smichaelsen,

It should have worked as expected with just a little patience. Please have a look at this example of routing on a so called unset path just to the east of yours (tagged as highway=path surface=ground) :- https://www.openstreetmap.org/directions?engine=fossgis_osrm_foot&route=54.46766%2C9.09774%3B54.46794%2C9.10003#map=17/54.46771/9.09767
