As much as Google Maps is, it’s not infallible. New places and routes are emerging all the time, and sometimes they are overlooked. You can help Google Maps and the community by plotting the missing roads yourself.
Just like adding a missing place, anyone can draw the missing routes on the map, but that doesn’t mean they will be accepted. Google will validate your extension before making it publicly available. Let’s get started.

You can add a place using a web browser on your Windows, Mac, and Linux computer. go to the Google Maps site to begin with.
Click the hamburger menu icon in the search box.
Select “Edit Map” from the sidebar.
Next, select “Add or Repair a Route”.
Use the mouse to move the map and click “Add Road” when you find the place.
First, enter the name of the missing road and select the type of road.
Then click all the way to draw the path. When finished, select “Review and Submit”.
Select Submit to confirm your addition.
Thats all about it! And rightly so, Google offers great protection for its map data, so don’t be surprised if your addition gets rejected. Don’t try to add all the methods provided you don’t.
