|Tools for this tag|
highway=turning_loop is used on a node to indicate a widened area of a highway with a non-traversable island for turning around, often circular and at the end of a road. This is different from a highway=turning_circle, which does not have an island. The non-traversable island may be higher or lower than the surrounding highway.
This tag (if approved) would be applied to a single node at the end of the way.
- highway=turning_circle - similar in construction and purpose to a turning loop, but does not have a non-traversable island
- highway=mini_roundabout - traversable island at the junction of two or more highways
- junction=roundabout - used at the junction of two or more highways with a non-traversable island
