Its a while since I cycled along these roads last but wasn't a there a cycle way marked out along the pavements [sidewalks] running all along the northern perimeter road of thatcham [that some councilers once wanted to turn into a kind of bypass. I remember trying not long after it was made and parts obviously looked better on a map than from the saddle; as it wasn't wide, had enough unsuspecting pedestrians and plentsy of blind tight bends around hedges and even tighter into crossings designed flow slow pedestrians not fast bikes. So I was wondering is it still there and just not mapped up yet or did someone relise it was a bit difficult to use compared to the main traffic lanes, and didn't renew it.

Bicycle access on http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/57833863/history is set to a non-value. Presumably some local knows the legal situation?

This foot way is closed in parts for short durations as a lot of utility companies are reconfigureing pipes and cables that underneath.
It would be useful for foot routers to advise users to look out for closure and diversion signs along here.
I'm going to show the brecks at xd9356 (12August2015) when I last visited.

This is recollection from when I last went along this path (approx 14 years ago), but there's footbridges with gates on and a pond around here (ie, between the river and the sports-ground).

I was going to sort some of the boundries of the hotel and the cotteges of Bath Place but the quad stair cases are confusing me a bit so it might take a bit long than expected to resolve I think it may be a 3d solution in the end or that the cottages are fronts for the stairs only now....

Broadgate Tower splits, and there's a weird roof bit here that doesn't make any sense. Should probably be made into 2 buildings with a relation? Not experienced enough to do it myself.

looking at Network rail lititure it seems that some lines may yet to be drawn or have been recent removals since 6/6/2015?

This isn't a problem but a note for contibuters like me!

When reading OSM data with the publicly released PDF version of NESA from Network rail {Mid March 2016}. Remember that pages 23,24 and 25 are only updated to 6/6/2015,6/6/2015 & 2/2/2013 so are out of date compared to OSM due to Crossrail constuction.

Things to look out for are:-
+ The resiteing of Pudding Mill Lane station originaly at 3miles and 21chains
+ The subsequant realingment of the quoted DLR that arrives from 2miles and 74chains - diverts where shown in OSM - Rejoins shown route in "PDF NESA"before Warton Road (Bridge 56) at 3miles and 25chains {see signalling and remarks column on page 24} where is shown on OSM.
+ The appearance of the new crossrail lines are missing.
+ Finally watch out for additional abandoned lines given on OSM but already left out of the diagrams in this version of NESA.

Like I started its not a problem with NESA but I hopes it helps prevents too much confusion for other looking to marry the data in the two sources. The industry only live version for train drivers is probably fixed already and in time the verions available in pdf will also be changed but till then I hope this helps with track nameing.
