Crossing lanes

The proposal seems to assume that lanes are not crossing each other between the "from way" and the "to way". This assumption is not true in reality. Examples:

  • changing to right turn lane might need to cross a bicycle or bus lane
  • left turn bicycle lanes between motor vehicle lanes might be entered by explicit crossing of motor vehicle lines.
  • bus lanes might change side

Could you please provide a photo of such situation? --Imagic (talk) 07:50, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Here an example of a cycleway crossing.--Jojo4u (talk) 20:28, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Lane numbering

You have introduced lane numbering in the placement proposal. Why not simply use these numbers as destination lane for key transit? This would also solve the crossing lanes issue.--Slhh (talk) 18:21, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Readability, ease of use, analogy to the key turn. --Imagic (talk) 07:50, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Starting lanes

Examples #1 and #3: The starting lane in the "to way" seems to be a pure feature of this way. Therefore it should be tagged on the "to way". One method to do this would be to set the starting width of the lane to 0:

Example #1: width:lanes:start=||0
Example #3: width:lanes:start=0||

The ability to change to the starting lane can be specified using change:lanes. --Slhh (talk) 19:18, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

The key width:lanes:start could be used to provide the width and this then could be used for guessing the right lane connections. The key/relation transit is about the exact specification of the lane connections. --Imagic (talk) 07:52, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
