Proposed features/Abandoned highways
|Definition:||Similar as railway=abandoned, but for highways|
|Rendered as:||perhaps highway rendered by dotted line|
See Proposed features/Abandoned for an active proposal.
The course of a former highway which has been abandoned and the previous surface is removed or so grown over so it is no longer visible.
However, some signs of the previous road still remain visible in the landscape.
Basically similar to railway=abandoned, just in this case it is highway that was removed and got disused, not railway
Same as in railway=abandoned: Designation not to be used if the feature has been turned into another use, eg cycleway.
Highway with dotted lines, with similar width as highway=residential
