Status: deprecated

exclamation mark

This feature has been labeled as deprecated. The recommended replacement is: lanes:both_ways=* and turn:lanes:both_ways=*.
The reason is documented in Deprecated features. You are still free to continue to use or interpret this tag as you see fit since OpenStreetMap does not have “banned features”.
Under no circumstances should you (semi-)automatically change “deprecated” tags to something else in the database on a large scale without conforming to the automated edits code of conduct. Any such change will be reverted.

A two-way center turn lane is a normal-width lane in the middle of a road that handles traffic from either direction turning across the other side (turning left in right-hand-drive countries). If there is a two-way center turn lane, use centre_turn_lane=yes.

An example of a center left turn lane in the U.S.

This tag has been deprecated in favor of the schema described in Lanes and Proposed features/Suffix both ways as in User:Mvexel's diary entry and discussion on talk-us.
