I think the OpenStreetMap shows the B4064 incorrectly. This 'B Road' starts at the B4055 in the village of Pilning and passes over the M49 and ends in the village of Severn Beach but the OpenStreetMap shows the B4064 continuing through Severn Beach to the A403 south of the village which I believe to be incorrect. Also the other arm of the B4064 that goes over the M4 at Redwick to end at New Passage is not shown as the B4064 on the OpenStreetMap.

OpenStreetMap still shows the B1228 between Howden and the A63 at Knedlington but I believe the road has been downgraded and is now an unclassified minor road. All up to date maps now show the road as unclassified and the road number has been removed from the sign on the A63 at Knedlington.

The great thing about OpenStreetmap is that if you see something that is wrong then you can change it.

The most recent OS maps also indicate the dead end to Redwick/New Passage is now unclassified.

At which scale? It shows it that way on the latest Landranger coverage and on June 2020 1:250k OpenData, but it's still there on every other scale I can find - latest Explorer, May 2020 VectorMap District, and all the other current OS Maps API layers.

Correct me if I'm wrong but it looks like part of the B1013 near Southend Airport and an unclassified minor road are both shown as an 'A Road' on OpenStreetMap
