for the public transport we use the beautiful openstreetmap router to calculate walk between some point in the city.

I' have a little problem for a simple path which go around some place instead of just cross it. I cannot understand how to correct this.

Here is the snapshot of the path.

and the map link :

What would you expect to happen? You start the route in the road tunnel of Rue Carl Hack. So you first have to get out of the tunnel and then head back to the platform.

I guess you did not specify the starting point correctly. Instead of on the middle platform you start on Rue Carl Hack.

Those "T" markers on your map don't appear in OSM. I suspect you use some external data and they are not aligned with the OSM data correctly.

first thanks for your response. There is no road tunnel near. Do you mean this "tunnel" ?

It's a bike tunnel juste near the Canal. But the "T" are on the top of the place, not in the tunnel. Maybe I will try to move it near the path.

I will try. Thanks.

I mean the Rue Carl Hack tunnel. You can see in the image you posted that the route follows that road.

On a side note: There is probably a bug in the map. I doubt the Southwest corner of Parvis Adrien Zeller connects to Rue Carl Hack. In the aerial it looks like the road is still subterranean there.
