Would you share the relevant ways ? Maybe they are not really connected, only really close ?

Searching around the forum suggests that you cant 'join' a Y shaped road configuration. Sorry just seen your response H_mlet. Walker Mews, Llanishen, Cardiff, Wales . Edited 17 days ago by Craftycockney Version #7 · Changeset #84465244

Indeed, in OSM a way is a sequence of nodes. Linear, or circular if the end is the same as the beginning. But multiple ways will be used to represent a single road, with a shared "name" tag usually.

You can find more details about the OSM data model in the wiki.

Regards.
