Hi there.

While creating a route type relation, a small part of that route stops for a while and then continues ahead, with that small part belonging to another route. In these cases, do I leave that "hole" on the relation I'm working on or do I use the other relation part?

If the route is not continuous in the real world, then it's OK to have a gap. Might be useful to mention that as note on the relation. I think this is rare for hiking and cycling routes, but as you wrote this can happen for relations representing roads. Where I map it is not common to create a relation for road-refs, I am only aware for relations for E- motorways. refs like you mention (ref=100) are just mapped as tag on the way itself.

If with "route" you mean a signposted hike, bus route, etc. you will have to split that other road and add the little segment to the route relation. AFAIK, a route is a continuous collection of way segments.

Thanks, escada. That seems reasonable, but where is that stated in the wiki?

For example: imagine I want to create a relation of a road with ref=100, but one part of it was never concluded, due to geography, geology, etc of the terrain. So it's missing 20 km in between. How do you complete that part within the relation if you don't have other roads or have several roads to choose from?

PS: "add new comment" is broken, so I'm answering this way.
