Network Analyst and Urban Paths Layer

I wonder if anyone has any suggestions as to how to solve this problem with the new urban path layer fro Ordnance Survey.

I've created a Network Dataset from the ITN Layer and the New Urban Paths Layer.  All connections are fine and it runs ok, however it often does not recognise points (facilities) that are lying close to the urban path layer i.e. Path nodes/lines and Connect nodes/lines.

It seems to prefer the ITN road network over the urban path network.

Because its for pedestrians and they can go anywhere, I'd like them to have equal heirarchy i.e. paths, primary roads A-roads, B-roads can be traversed equally.

Is there a way to do this?  I tried looking at the heirarchy notes but I couldn't make that much sense of them.

I can move them to a new location but because I'm using a population centred X Y location, I am reluctant to do this.

Any help would be appreciated.
