If you zoom in on the news map you notice there are so many details out of date. Newcomen Street still has the one-way arrows going west to east whereas it has been reversed for about 2 years, as has the BHS end of Union St.
And the tube entrance/exits for London Bridge on BHS don't feature after what must be 5 years.
I wonder if these updates appear on SatNavs and how quickly important street changes are updated.
You would think Google maps would be updated immediately.

You may find that the main Google Maps site - http://maps.google.co.uk - has slightly different and more up-to-date mapping than the version they make available to third-party sites like ours.

The licensing of all the data on the maps is a nightmare.

Google Maps site - http://maps.google.co.uk - has the same info for the BHS area as the SE1 map so I think all Goole maps must have errors due to not updating regularly.

I think it's Gower STreet that they have one way the wrong way... which makes their route planner somewhat over-exciting!
