Hi all,

I've noticed that sections of Diagonal road ( are not highlighted in bold when zoomed out, but remain when zoomed back in. I only notice this in the editor, which wouldn't be a problem, but Mapbox has a similar rendering issue which appears to break the roads, even when zoomed in ( I don't think this is a caching/update time issue.

I'm assuming there's some property somewhere which is causing this inconsistency, but all the road segments look the same. I have found a few other instances of this in my local area, and I was wondering if someone could give me some pointers on how to begin fixing it. I've done some Googling around the problem, but found little information. I'm sure this is a simple fix, but maybe my keywords were not quite right.

Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't expect an area that big to load in an in-browser editor at zoom level 14 without some data going missing. The data is in OSM - see .

The error that you can see at (and I can see too) is something that you'll need to talk to Mapbox about. The other layers that I see at don't show the error.

If I remember correctly the black road network shown when you zoom out in iD is provided by Mapbox. So it is only natural we see the same piece of road gone missing.
