The Jamaican road network is quite extensive and varied. To adequately capture the complexities the following tagging scheme is suggested. In addition the surface tag can be applied to specify the type of surfacing. This is particularly useful to record unsurfaced roads.

Type Description Suggested tags
Highway2000 Modern freeways highway=trunk + ref= + name=
A Older main roads that still represent primary routes highway=primary + ref=A#
B Secondary routes highway=secondary + ref=B#
Parochial Roads maintained by the parishes highway=tertiary + designation=parochial + name=
Parochial Smaller or less direct roads that are also maintained by the parishes highway=unclassified + designation=parochial + name=
Unclassified Other roads outside of residential areas that aren't maintained by the parishes highway=unclassified, name=
