|The newer Sidewalk proposal seems to be equivalent to this proposal, except it uses the key name sidewalk=* instead of footway=*.|
This map feature proposal has been merged into Proposed features/Advanced footway and cycleway.
|Proposal status:||Obsoleted (inactive)|
|Definition:||for better capture the details of where footways are next to roads|
Proposed new tag: footway=both/left/right/none
Provide a method to indicate whether a sidewalk exists along a road, without needing to map as a separate way. Should be used where the sidewalk is adjacent to the road, or with a narrow (less than 2 meters or so) verge between. If the distance between the sidewalk and road is large or variable, it should be mapped separately.
For footway on both sides of a road: (default for residential-roads)
<tag k="footway" v="both"/>
For footway on left side of a road:
<tag k="footway" v="left"/>
For footway on right side of a road:
<tag k="footway" v="right"/>
For roads with no footways/sidewalks:
<tag k="footway" v="none"/>
a footway instead of the outline of a road
