Question about removing sections of streets

" Street has nodes all over : Because of this lack of “street” record, the underlying CityStrides code needs to build its own understanding of a Street. This is (currently; April 2020) done by collecting all the Way records in one city with the same name & collecting all of those together as a Street."

One issue that I think this causes which I just want to note, the query excludes trunk roads. However a major highway within my city boundaries (70mph traffic, no paths) has nodes on it, and my guess is that this is because it has a name ‘london road’ which is the same as a normal road within the city.

If you edit OpenStreetMaps so its Foot = No for the nodes that are inaccessible then next time Brighton is imported major London Road will disappear, but the minor London Road will remain.
