The barrier tag is usually used for nodes along ways where travel is restricted by an obstacle. It is offered as a cleaner alternative to using highway=gate etc. It also covers ways (e.g. fences) that are themselves obstacles.

Linear barriers
barrier hedge Mf way.png Mf area.png is a line of closely spaced shrubs and bushes, planted and trained in such a way as to form a barrier or to mark the boundary of an area. Hedge.png
barrier fence Mf way.png Mf area.png a freestanding structure designed to restrict or prevent movement across a boundary. It is generally distinguished from a wall by the lightness of its construction. Barrier fence mapnik.png Fence.png
barrier wall Mf way.png Mf area.png a freestanding structure designed to restrict or prevent movement across a boundary made from solid brick, concrete rocks, and almost always built so that it is opaque to vision. Dscf0590-800.jpg
barrier ditch Mf way.png Mf area.png A trench, ditch or ravine, usually with a stream at the bottom, that is not easily crossed, especially if not on foot. Can be used in combination with waterway=stream or waterway=drain

Linear barriers with sides
barrier retaining_wall Mf way.png Mf area.png is a structure that holds back soil or rock from a building, structure or area. Retaining walls prevent downslope movement or erosion and provide support for vertical or near-vertical grade changes.
  • right side is bottom, left side is top.

barrier city_wall Mf way.png Mf area.png Is a fortification used to defend a city or settlement from potential aggressors. From ancient to modern times, they are used to enclose settlements.
  • right side is bottom, left side is top. if both sides are same height then add "two_sided=yes".

Node barriers
barrier bollard Mf node.png Mf way.png solid (usually concrete or metal) pillar or pillars in the middle of the road to prevent passage by some traffic. Barrier bollard osmarender.png Bollard in residential area.jpg
barrier cycle_barrier Mf node.png Barriers to bicycle traffic, most typically a pair of staggered steel bars perpendicular to the way itself whose gaps allow pedestrians to pass. Cycle barrier osmarender.png Unknown barrier.jpg
barrier cattle_grid Mf node.png Bars in the road surface that allow wheeled vehicles but not animals to cross. Sometimes known as a Texas Gate, even outside of Texas

barrier toll_booth Mf node.png A road usage toll or fee is collected here Toll booth.jpg
Access nodes
barrier entrance Mf node.png A hole in a linear barrier with no specific construction that limits passing through. access=yes is understood. the limitations are the same of the way that crosses it, if there is such. Entrance.png
barrier gate Mf node.png An entrance that can be opened or closed to get through the barrier. Combine with access=* where appropriate. Barrier gate osmarender.png Gate-hindeloopen-westerdijk.jpg
barrier stile Mf node.png A stile allows pedestrians to cross a wall or fence, but never actually "opens" the barrier (unlike a gate, a stile has few or no moving parts). KentStile.jpg
barrier sally_port Mf node.png A sally_port is used to pass through thick or city walls, and is a type of covered gate with two doors. Sallyport.jpg
