#2679 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Change rendering of highway=track tracktype=grade2/1

Description

Currently highway=track with tracktype=grade2 is rendered as a dotted line. Unfortunately it is very difficult to distinguish grade2 from grade3 or grade4 tracks. So my suggestion is to draw grade2 just like grade1 is currently being drawn. As grade1 (paved) tracks are mostly used for cycle ways, these tracks could be drawn as a blue dotted line, like cyle ways.

These changes would bring more consistency in the map, because at the moment the same tracks are sometimes tagged as cycleways or tracktype=1.

highway=track tracktype=grade1 -> blue dotted line
highway=track tracktype=grade2 -> brown line
highway=track tracktype=grade3-5 -> brown dotted line
