#746 closed enhancement (wontfix)

motorway_link, trunk_link and primary_link rendering too wide

Description

The slip roads/ramps leading to and from major roads are typically narrower than the roads mainline and always less important from a mapping perspective. But because the current rules cause links to be rendered as wide as the mainline, the detail of junctions usually can't be seen without zooming in very close (and sometimes isn't clear even then).

I propose that links be shown as narrow as practical. Alternatively, if we wish to accurately render wider links where they exist, the width could be made dependent on the lanes attribute, defaulting to lanes=1.

Taking the lanes tag into account when rendering would be a nice enhancement not only for *_link but for almost all highway.

Can you point to a zoom level and a spot where that still occurs? Browsing through the style sheets, things seem mostly fine to me. I'll close this one as worksforme soon if I don't hear anything back.

Right here: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=53.31853&lon=-6.36878&zoom=16&layers=0B00FTF

As far as I can see, no changes in the width of motorway_link or trunk_link have been attempted. Both appear to be rendered just as wide as motorway and trunk respectively, and my suggestion is that readability would be improved if they were made narrower.

Here's a link that shows it better:

The ramps are far less distinct than they could be.
