I haven't come across any green roads yet.
Most look like this:

I would call several of them plainly green. What about the following one?

(This is on a color-calibrated monitor, btw.) All other ORBX Prepar3d roads in PNW, NCA etc. look grey on the same monitor. Even some others in TEGB look better. If you follow that road towards the West (i.e. behind in this shot) it will turn grey at some point.

Roads under TEGB XP11 definitely are not green.

Kind regards, Michael

I'm just looking again at the first image, from my earlier post, on my phone, having screenshot-ed it from my calibrated monitors. I wouldn't call any of the major roads displayed in the first picture as "plainly green". Maybe they're not as dark grey as in XP11's SP1 version, but I don't have a problem with them. Of course, it's very likely that you and I are seeing and interpreting the picture differently.

Now your picture does show a road where I do see that there is a colour problem. In the initial release, I recall seeing a number of major roads tinted a green colour as obvious as the trees and fields next to them. In my test sessions after installing the update, I haven't found any (yet).

I don't know if Orbx fixed the colouring of roads or not, but I haven't yet found any to complain about.

Something worth pointing out to Orbx to get it fixed in SP1?

I think its unlikely, the colour issues for roads are due to the colour corrections applied across the whole PR.. I guess fixing that would require taking the source ortho again and adjusting the pallette for a selection of the roads only.  Then it would be a complete redownload of the scenery fir everyone.  I just dont see orbx doing it.

I opened a thread on the green roads issue in the ORBX forum, hopefully we'll get an answer there.

I wish that ORBx TrueEarth GB Central for P3D v4 was on the horizon. After the vast improvement that TrueEarth GB South has made over my PlayHorizon VFR Photographic Scenery (even with all of those 3DM files disabled), I am starting to get impatient for the rest!

Chris, let Orbx release a couple of American titles, they need revenue and the reduced costs of US sceneries (due to free imagery) will be a big boost for them...

Yes, but they have already purchased the UK photographic images. I understand that they want to get some revenue under their belts, but leaving the UK only one third completed for an extended period of time is........frustrating.
