Roads don't change over time in NewGRFs where they are supposed to, like in TTRS or NA Roads set.

(Not sure if it's unknown, the bug is in 1.1.4 too.)
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  Those NewGRFs abuse the specs to display different graphics for roads in different years. This is not supported, although it does work if you save and load your game. In multiplayer games it won't work at all.

See the readme files for those grfs. You need to save your game and reload it for the roads to change over, it's not possible any other way. It's not a bug in OTTD but a limitation of what NewGRFs are capable of.
