Summary0000494: Stripmaps for Junctions with bridges
is an example: picture of Leeds Dock junction - where the bridge is a separate 'place'. Seems prefereable here to show the junction as 'junction with towpath bridge' and its stripmap shows the mainline with a towpath bridge. On the branch though, it shows two bridges where there is only one. The alternative shows the branch with one bridge (but not at the junction, and the mainline towingpath not having a bridge.
Steps To ReproduceView Leeds Dock junction. Iirc Barbridge has the same issue.
Additional InformationHow about a separate bridge type "junction Bridge" which doen't show on the stripmaps - just relying on the correct settings for the junction ??

Bridges at junctions have always been a bit of a problem - same with bridges over lock tails.


Nick Atty (administrator)

Indeed. It was never my intention to put them in as separate places (there is even specific code to handle lock/bridge combinations) but the data editing crew think differently, and as they put the data in, they win.

Some sort of special-casing along the lines you suggest would seem to be the answer, and would also work for lock-tail bridges (effectively it's a "bridge is dealt with in stripmaps elsewhere" category). Will think about it.

Thanks - especially for proposing a solution.

What we want is the situation at Middlewich junction, which works nicely. The thing is, I can't work out why!


Nick Atty (administrator)

I've implemented this in a slightly different way - at the junction you can check that the first place down a branch is actually the junction bridge. In that case, the bridge is displayed on the map for the main line, but not on the map for the branch,

Seems to work well.

(Middlewich is different - because three waterways meet there, each can be set separately).

Closing automatically, stayed too long in feedback state. Feel free to re-open with additional information if you think the issue is not resolved.
