|Definition:||To bind all parts of a street together and everything else that belongs to it (especially addresses).|
This Relation is used to bind all parts of a street together and everything else that belongs to it (especially addresses). A 'street' in this case, consists of all ways with the same street-name (in one city of course, not everywhere).
Since many streets are split into many ways (mostly due to different properties), it could be useful if one could have a way to put all those parts back together.
Since both the street-relation and the currently used associatedStreet relation (which binds housenumbers to streets) do pretty much the same, it would be sensible to use one relation to bind all elements of a street together. Otherwise we would have one street-relation that contains all the street segments and at least one associatedStreet-relation that either contains one of the street segments or maybe the street-relation.
|type||street||Defines that this is a Relation of the type 'street'.|

|any||*||Any Tag that applies to all parts of the road (this is always true for the 'name', but that's obligatory anyway)|
