highway=bus_sluice

Rationale

In Denmark and the Netherlands (at least) we have a contraption called a bus sluice - a hole in the road too wide for small cars, but navigable by buses and other wide vehicles - for pictures, see:

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bussluis

http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bussluse

In the UK, there are these and stuff like rising bollard plugs.

For how it could be done without adding further keys, see [1]

Bus gate: three ways linked to two nodes (close together). The ways on the outside are highway=cycleway and the one on the inside is highway=unclassified or whatever and access=no psv=yes. To make it clearer I have sometimes used highway=service to distinguish it from the roads at either end. (David Earl on the talk list)

Rendering

Could be shown as an orthogonal line across the road (in red, perhaps?).
