 Narrow street 

For now - don't use this road type. The use of this road type must be approved by a L4+


Road type introduced April 2018, When talking about road type narrow street (formerly Alley), we mean very narrow streets that are drive-able, but hard to access by car. It's the kind of roads that are so narrow, you'd rather not get a route through when driving, unless it is significantly faster. However, as a motorcycle, alleys are convenient for navigation. We'd expect to find relatively low segment speeds on narrow streets already, due to the physical characteristics of the street. Narrow streets will have a routing penalty for cars and taxis, but not for motorcycles.
