Service area generation with OSM shapefile

I need to create a network dataset for generating service areas based on Kilometres and Travel time.


I am using ArcMap10.5, Educational licence. I have downloaded two shapefiles for two countries from 

GEOFABRIK // Downloads 

Then, I used Merge tool and output was a feature class. So, I exported it to Single shapefile. I created a network dataset and for "Length" attribute, I chose "Shape" as "Value" in "Elevators" window.


When I create service areas, they are not correctly generated.


Do I have to do anything with the shapefile before creating network datasets? 


Thank you!
