This proposal has been superseded by the currently active Proposed features/Bridge types. It is left here as historic reference but please refer to the new proposal and bridge=* for information on current mapping.

Proposal

There is a single "bridge=<type>" tag:

bridge=yes
bridge=aqueduct
bridge=viaduct
bridge=swing
bridge=...

which replaces the various bridge and bridge-related tags:

waterway=aqueduct
highway=viaduct
railway=viaduct

In other words, all bridge-like structures are values of the bridge tag. This is acceptable on nodes and ways, although most instances are on short-ish ways.

Tagging

bridge=yes
bridge=aqueduct
bridge=viaduct
bridge=swing
bridge=...

Rendering

As normal bridge, with possible specialisations for certain bridge types, at the renderer's discretion.
