Approach from intersection to roundabout

  • When changing an intersection into roundabout, it's easiest to cut up some segments so that you can close off some small segments and have room left to draw in the roundabout.

New road, not yet available for traffic
If you want to map a new road while it is not yet available for traffic, follow the next steps:
- Draw the new road segments.
- Add Restrictions that effectively close the affected segments to all traffic.
- Connect the segments to the rest of the road network.
Wait for the Map update that publishes the new segments.
- Remove the restrictions.
- Add Closures to close the road segments.
When the road segments are opened to traffic:
