Incorrect Google Map Directions

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Posting here following guidance from Google Maps help forum:



I've made changes to the directions to Oxford Montessori Schools (OX3 9UW) on Map Maker, which now show up on there*. They have been active on Map Maker for several months now. However, these changes do not affect the directions given to the school on - it still takes people the wrong way. Am I missing something? I have to redirect people all the time! 
*The change is that the directions should bring you into the school along the unnamed road off the B4027 rather than coming through the no-entry back entrance off the road from Elsfield village. 
If anyone is able to help with this, it would be very much appreciated.

Hi Martyn,
This is a Maps' issue rather than a My Business issue.
I see a gate on the Street View imagery. One way would be to mark the priority attribute for that segment as No Auto Traffic, but I have the suspicion that the directions would end at the same location on the main road.

Since you have made the corrections several months ago it seems that they are not going to propagate to Maps.
Probably it would be best to request the correction of the access point for the address and the POI's associated to that location.
Wouldn't these two listings be duplicates?,-1.21...,-1.2131755,17.5z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x00000...
although the former is categorized as a school, while the latter is categorized as a farm.
Is there a farm business selling produce to the people that shows up?
Is the farm POI necessary?
Thank you
