  • Ways with a physical divider have to be mapped as two separates ways ... --PhilippeP 13:13, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
    • There exists single carriageways with one lane per driving direction and a small physical divider in between (concrete barrier or dots with cat's eye plates standing upwards) to prevent drivers to cross a double solid line. I think these small streets should not be mapped as two separate parallel ways. --BerndR 14:08, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
      • Umm, if there's a physical barrier then there are 2 carriageways - even if only one lane in each direction. So it's not a single carriageway. I know of a few dual carriageways with only one lane in each direction. Richard B 19:28, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
        • a solid line with "remebering-dots" is IMHO no physical barrier. And for this lines this divider-tag would be very useful cbm 20:50, 9 December 2007 (UTC)
  • I like the idea, because in many situations it can save complicated junction/turning-restriction-relations :) --cbm 15:38, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
  • i don't see a use for this at all. if the road is divided into two, whether by a concrete wall, a steel fence, a row of permanent cones (yes, we have those in nz), or just a low kerb, the effect is the same: vehicles are not allowed to cross. in which case, there should be two separate ways, one for each direction. this is redundant as far as i can see. for the occasion where there are gaps (e.g. for emergency vehicles, etc.) then an appropriately tagged way should be drawn between the two.

  • this tag does not give a means of describing where the divider is placed, or how many lanes are on one side of it. I propose that we keep with the idea of seperate ways for divided cariageways. --Mungewell 20:43, 3 April 2008 (BST)
  • I know this is an old discussion, but I realy feel that there's something here, especially if you think about the situation of a solid line dividing the opposite lanes and no physical obstacle. In Romania is not uncommon for a way to have such a solid line in the middle for some months and later on to e changed to be turned into a discontinued line (allowing u turns and left turning). It could save a lot of time and editing when the change happens (just edit the way and change the divider value from solid_line to interrupted_line) and would prevent addition and removal of ways, when it happens. -- EddyP 03:01 18 March 2009 (EET)
