Status: Part of Map Features#Highway

Use of this tag is documented at: Tag:highway=pedestrian

Old proposal/voting page (Historical interest only)

For town centres and civic areas, where wide expanses of hard surface are provided for pedestrians to walk between shops.

Vehicles may be allowed in during the evenings to unload merchandise, but are often prevented from entering normally by bollards

Cyclists may try to use these features, leaving behind a trail of irate pedestrians, but are not supposed to be there (rules may vary by country).

The "footpath" tag is a bit inappropriate for such things.

Usage

Key: highway Value: pedestrian

  • I disapprove this proposal. (I 95% agree with this valuable proposal but feel pedestrian is a synonym for footway and so confusing, why not precinct?) Ewmjc 04:02, 19 September 2006 (BST)

  • I vote for precinct MikeCollinson 00:55, 22 September 2006 (BST)
  • I approve this proposal. I slightly prefer pedestrian, as I take a precinct to mean a custom-built shopping area and thus it does not cover pedestrianised standard streets. Nickw 11:37, 30 September 2006 (BST)
  • I approve this proposal, though I need another vote to make a distinction between pedestrianised road and precinct, to undeline the historic development.scoid 12:59, 1 October 2006 (BST)
  • I approve this proposal. Rw 14:23, 8 October 2006 (BST) I prefer pedestrian and am unfamiliar with precinct in this context (in North American usage)
  • I approve this proposal, I vote for pedestrian (voting late, but this does not seem to have been moved to Map Features yet). Matthew Newton 02:13, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal, also late but with the same remark as above Cimm 15:57, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal, voting only for pedestrian --blk 17:55, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal, a late vote, only for pedestrian, precinct doesn't exactly cover the same meaning imho -- Johndrinkwater 23:31, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Vote Ended

Well the vote has ended. There is/was a few points on the discussion page that havn't really developed, but should this be moved to the Features page? or is "pedestrianised" a good enough idea to be considered? Ben. 04:39 18th December 2006 (UTC)

Moving Page now....Sven Anders 13:01, 18 December 2006 (UTC)
