highway and cycleway in JOSM view
visualization of lanes with lanetool plugin for JOSM.

This is an example for the lane and lane group proposal.

It features a two-lane road with a cycleway for each direction and a single footway. The mapper decided to draw one of the cycleways as an own way. The lanes have different surfaces (asphalt, cobblestone on the footway) and widths.

The example is also available as an .osm file that can be edited in JOSM or any text editor.

Details

The example consists of

  • a highway that is tagged as usual:
highway=secondary
maxspeed=50
  • a separate way for the right cycleway:
lane=cycleway
oneway=yes
surface=asphalt
width=1
  • relation for right vehicle lane:
lane=vehicle_lane
oneway=yes
surface=asphalt
width=4
  • relation for left vehicle lane:
lane=vehicle_lane
oneway=-1
surface=asphalt
width=4
  • relation for left cycleway:
lane=cycleway
oneway=-1
surface=asphalt
width=1
  • relation for footway (on the left):
lane=footway
surface=cobblestone
width=1
  • and a relation to group all this together
type=lane_group
with the following members:
  • highway, as "highway"
  • right cycleway, as "2"
  • right vehicle lane, as "1"
  • left vehicle lane, as "-1"
  • left cycleway, as "-2"
  • footway, as "-3"

(0 would be the middle between the directions (normally))
