These POI should fit in with "Find"/"Where to?" > "Transportation"
which has categories:
0x2f02: Auto Rental
0x2f04: Air Transportation
0x2f08: Ground Transportation
0x0f17: Transit Service
so there isn't scope for different symbols

I've changed cycleway to have use lineType 0x11.

The others all represent ways that support a motor vehicle, and 0x07
(Alley) is the best fit for this in the standard Garmin Road types.

Some could be changed to use the other, unused, lineTypes in the range
0x0d .. 0x13. These support routing, and, without a typ-file, show as a
thin black line with label 'Line' on some Garmin devices, but not on

I think the original idea was that you'd be able to walk where the
highway was being constructed; this is probably wrong and it would be
clearer to show nothing. I can change this in a future revision if
there is a consensus
