You should be able to tick or comment on any route that has been submitted to the database. The routes listed under the description are just a list and have not necessarily been submitted. The list of routes to the left are the submitted ones and you should be able to tick and comment on those, (they are also linked to the names in the list and as such are blue while the ones that have not been submitted are still black text).
