Summary

The current tagging scheme as stated on key:cycleway seems insufficient to me. There is no way to define different types of cycleways on different sides of the street, nor is it possible to define a sidewalk that is both a designated cycleway and a footway.

Note: This is to tag cycleways at the side of streets. Cycleways that run on a physically seperated way, may be tagged as highway=cycleway and so on just like before.

Reasoning

Usage

First define what ways a street has:

Then, if necessary (especially for path=*), describe the ways more closely:

If you defined the both value for one of the keys above, you can also address one side directly:

The properties are defined as proposed in Proposed features/Properties for Tags.

Examples

Picture Tagging Comment
Cycle nexttoroad.jpg

highway=residential
footway=right
path=left
path.foot=designated
path.bicycle=designated

There's a normal sidewalk on the right side of the street and a line-seperated foot/cycleway on the left side. Since they share the same way (even if segregated, but only by a painted line), they are tagged as one.

highway=residential
footway=both
cycleway=right
cycleway.type=lane

There is a footway on both sides of the street, but also a lane for cyclists on the right side. Since the lane and the footway are on different parts of the road (seperated by the kerb), also a seperate tag is used.

highway=tertiary
track=left
track.bicycle=designated
track.foot=designated
cycleway=right
cycleway.type=lane
footway=right
or
highway=tertiary
cycleway=both
cycleway.left.foot=designated
cycleway.right.type=lane
footway=right

Mixed cycleway/footway on the left side, cyclelane and footway on the right side.
