Event Timeline

Likely these weird circular roads detached from rest of the road network are another side-effect of recent imposm migration. I found a couple of old screenshots in T141362#2495658 suggesting that earlier Wikimedia maps didn't render amenity=parking at all.

Yes, that sounds right; I don't remember ever seeing this before. Thanks for looking at this!
