making Chalkida - Lepoura and Lepoura - Karystos roads secondary as they lead to towns
I disagree with making that national road secondary: Just because Karystos is merely a town doesn't mean that the Greek government considers the road to there unimportant.
I disagree too. This road can't be a secondary road.
you guys..i thought you agreed on this scheme (roads connecting towns to be secondary)..instead of moving forward we go back?
ps: EO44 in fact ends in Lepoura
I've noticed a strange conflict in this system.We can not classify a road as secondary, that it has EO prefix at the same time, meaning that is characterized as National road by legal documents. Exceptions are National roads that have been replaced at a later time (after 1998).
Exception example is ΕΟ44β, which correctly is classified as secondary because has replaced by A11 at year 2007.
What I was trying to say is usually (in many countries), classified roads determines the status, with very limited exceptions (e.g. totally impassable or no cars in Hydra). Then, because a lot of new roads in Greece are unclassified, connecting roads are tagged according to their overall condition between two points (e.g. settlements, junctions). it is never my intention that the classification changes every time the layout changes: that just makes the whole thing confusing for the navigation systems that depend on us.
nikospag, I'd like to point out that we should not spread National roads over more than two classes, to reduce confusion. What is currently mapped as ΕΟ44β is actually Boeotia ΕΠ34 (the latest data for the two units is from 1955), while the A11 follows the ΕΟ44β.
This conversation must be transferred to the forum. I will open a topic and i will copy-paste all comments from here
