Directions to our house is wrong, how do I fix it?
1
Hello, 

The directions to our house is wrong  in Google maps and I have reported it several times (I think probably 5 or 6 times) but every time I get the answer that it cannot be verified. You can easily look at Googles own Streetview images and see what is marked as a drivable road is only accessible by feet, and definitely not by car.  

Today I had to spend another 20 minutes in phone to describe the direction to a delivery truck who took the wrong way. 

This is my description of the error in Google maps:
"The road Skräddargårdshöjd is not connected to Övre Skräddargårdsvägen. There is only a narrow path between the roads that is only accessible by foot, and absolutely not by car. Please look at the Street view images for Skräddargårdshöjd 21 to see that it is not possible to drive to Övre Skräddaregårdsvägen from the street Skräddargårdshöjd. 
I have reported this issue several times but it has been denied due to not possible to verify. Please look into the Street View image to see that it is only a small path between the roads. Thanks!"

This link shows the narrow path in StreetView: https://goo.gl/maps/dmXh2c6TZb4gkuJW6

This is the path that the delivery trucks are supposed to take according to the the directions:


These are two screenshots of my last reports:


Best regards,

Hi Johaness,
I see that the Maps team has made the requested changes and only walking and bicycling directions are offered now through that road segment.

Thank you. 

Now a part of the Övre Skräddaregårdsvägen is marked as a pathway. 

It is only the 10 meters connection between the roads Övre Skräddaregårdsvägen and Skräddargårdshöjd that is a not drivable pathway. 

I have marked the non-drivable pathway section with red below:

The green sections above should still be drivable.


This is the streeview image where the Skräddargårdshöjd street ends at the red mark below:



Best regards,

Hi Johannes,
Thank you, yes, the satellite imagery is not correctly aligned on Google Maps.
I will ask Google employees to undo my incorrect request, but before I do, are the two roads connected by a walking trail as seem to indicate your original screen capture and description of the problem?
Thank you
