New roads: Under Construction

Hey Mappers,

We would like to thank you very much for all your edits done in Map Creator so far.


You’ve all been providing missing geometry and attributes for new streets and paths which are missing from our maps, using for example, fresh satellite images (if available to you, please check the Alternate Sat Layer!) or gpx-/geojsonfiles in Your Geospace.


Moving on to new under construction roads that are not yet open for traffic to use, we would recommend to only add the geometry if construction has commenced and the road will be open during the next 12 months.  Drop a line  to us to say when the road will open  and we will add the date to restict access.


If that’s not the case, we will appreciate if you could let us know about these new road projects via our communication channels such as the UK Discussion Forum or via e-mail to


Please note that that new roads which are not yet open for traffic to access but have already been digitised on HERE maps appear as “open” roads in Map Creator as seen in the screengrab below:


However construction roads are displayed differently on the published/navigable HERE WeGo map and app.  Initially they are displayed dashed until the last three months before opening when then become non-dashed  but still not navigable.


If you’re unsure about what to do we are always glad to help out.
