Proposed features/Drop Bollard
|Status:||Draft (under way)|
|Definition:||Bollards which normally provide a barrier=*, but can be moved or removed, and thus provide no barrier.|
|Rendered as:||Show the same a barrier=bollard, but maybe a different colour? Green?|
Some bollards are removable, and so their access permissions can change depending on circumstances. When raised or in place they provide a normal bollard (and should be treated as such). When lowered they provide no obstacle, and therefore should be ignored by routing engines. They can have their own access permissions, such as being lowered for deliveries, etc.
I suggest a new tag, rather than adding a type= because of the profound difference these have on routing.
Add more specific tags for those who have access all the time, whatever the position (or, of course, never have access. This may be best on the ways leading from the barrier, but is permissible on the barrier itself.). E.g. bicycle=yes hgv=no
