Streets with 0 Nodes

Since today the city of Assen (Ronald Sluiter - CityStrides) has 7 streets with zero nodes. For example the “Burgemeester Grollemanweg”: Burgemeester Grollemanweg in Assen, Drenthe - CityStrides (I can send the links to the other streets if necassary)

Further: some nodes of the “Witterweg” (Witterweg in Assen, Drenthe - CityStrides) have been removed. That’s correct because some of the nodes were inaccessible. Now I’ve completed this street, but it’s still in my incomplete streets list.

Is it possible to remove these two streets?

These are (dangerous) highway service area’s. Or do I have to fix this in Open Street Map? How?

that should be OSM change
Heb je voor mij de straten in Assen? doe ik dat wel ff. :slight_smile:Wel wachten tot James de update naar CS trekt


ik zie dat het rest area’s zijn! die hoeven we niet aan te passen want die worden in de eerstvolgende update van OSM naar CS eruit gehaald. die vraag had ik vorige week al bij james gedumpt. in de tussentijd kan je manual complete doen als je wilt.

Hallo Patrick,

Het lijkt erop dat de update naar CS afgelopen nacht heeft plaatsgevonden. De 7 straten met 0 nodes waren er namelijk gisteren nog niet. Deze zou James eruit moeten kunnen halen, ofwel niet via OSM? En de “Witterweg” heb ik laatst zelf aangepast in OSM (deels een private road), die aanpassing is ook net doorgevoerd. Manual complete wil ik voorkomen als er ook nog andere opties zijn :slight_smile:

Hi James, I see London Borough Of Croydon has been updated and there are several ‘0 Node’ streets that have appeared. I’m not sure whether this is pre or post you resolving the bug in the code.
Would it be possible for you to remove those streets? One example is:
Albert Yard - Albert Yard in London Borough of Croydon, England - CityStrides

I notice streets with 0 nodes that have appeared in the city “cite-Limoilou” today and suddenly my 100% has dropped. Do you want streets with 0 nodes pointed out to you or is this a bug that you are fixing?

It’s a bug I need to fix in the global update code. I have enough info to work on it, so at the moment no new reports are needed.
Thanks for your patience!


Hi James,

In University Endowment Lands (UBC, BC), there are five streets showing as zero nodes. Two of them: Crooked Branch Road and Shortcut Road are new streets and show fine on Openstreetmaps.

Thank you,

Yeah, it’s an issue in the global update code that I’m pretty sure I fixed. The next update will resolve that.

Thanks James, I appreciate your quick response.

These streets were not showing a couple of weeks ago, so I think the update is recent. Do you have an ETI on when regular updates are going to start?

They’re currently ongoing: Now Testing: City street/node updates

Got 14 zero node streets back in Elmbridge that I have 100% done (well without these)

Aissele Place
Ashley Drive
Ashley Park Crescent
Barrington Lodge
Cloister Court
Englemere Park
Esher Park Avenue
Irene Road
Little Orchard Place
Littleworth Lane
Nettlefold Walk

OK, so yesterday Lidingö Lidingö kommun, Stockholms län - CityStrides was successully updated, that is my additions from OSM are now visible in the street listing. But they all have zero nodes. Those are streets that were present in OSM, but without a name. I have now just named them: E.g. Abborrstigen in Lidingö kommun, Stockholms län - CityStrides
It’s shown in the map, a sido-road going west halfway down on Abborrvägen in Lidingö kommun, Stockholms län - CityStrides

Is this the right place to report zero node streets as got 14 (see above) that need clearing down to can get back to 100% again!

I only have 30 streets to go in my city but they all have 0-nodes.

Probably half of them I ran by now but 0-node streets cannot be completed.

Why is it that everytime I see this topic, I immediately flash back to the song by U2: Where the Streets have no Nodes?

Maybe I’m just old?


@fredrik.coulter Nice. That was the first album I owned on CD.

Was going to make a bad pun but I’ll resist. I’m guessing the answer is ‘fix it in OSM’ but just because I haven’t come across this problem before, thought I’d run it by the forum first…what’s weird is the road is part of Benfica (in CityStrides and in reality), and does populate on the map, but why does it appear in the list of roads if it has no nodes…?

Curious about this too for 31 Alley in Durham, North Carolina - CityStrides

Potential good news: Updates on November 4, 2020

James thinks he has the 0-node bug resolved! Just need to wait for the next OSM update for that city!


@JordiMonge before that, I’d prefer some other issues fixed before such as showing a street as complete after completing all the nodes, mainly because it shows more nodes than the ones it actually has. E.g. Marlboro Way, Pleasanton, CA has 8 nodes, but it shows 29.@JamesChevalier any plans on fixing that? Thanks in advance!
