Is Mapquest routing updated along with OSM?

There is a particular junction problem in OSM, which we fixed yesterday. The problem appears for example when we try to find a route from location A to B (route is correct from B to A):

A: 43.41891, 24.60847
B: 43.418255, 24.606897

Google shows a route of 160m (which is correct). Mapquest shows 2.04 km - fastest and 1.72km - shortest, which is not correct at all. We added a route link at that junction in OSM. Will that affect Mapquest routing and when? If not, how can we update Mapquest data?

RE: Is Mapquest routing updated along with OSM?
I have checked in with our directions services product manager and learned that we have not updated the OSM data for this issue yet, but they are looking into getting an update added to their tasks list soon.  I have no date to offer for their "soon" reference.

After more than a month since

After more than a month since our initial post the problem still remains. Openstreetmap and OSRM auto-updated their routing after about a week, since we updated the OSM map. Is there any way to edit OSM data directly in Mapquest or some other way to report OSM updates to Mapquest?

Here is what appears in Mapquest: fastest (2.04 km) and shortest (1.72 km) route. And here is what appears in OSRM (159 m) and Openstreetmap.org without ever writing to them. We just used OSM editor to add a missing route link in a junction.

The OSM data update process
The OSM data update process is currently broken. A fix is in the backlog but no eta at this time.
