Usage

Regards any support where two or more lines coming from the same origin divege toward different directions.

It includes situations where some of the incoming circuits go underground with location:transition=yes, this value should be combined with transition. This value regards nodes connecting lines with different circuits=* and cables=* values.

This value can't be combined with itself, straight and cross to describe several situations on the same support level.

Possible mistakes

Only branch supports combined with branch:type=split or branch:type=loop should be carefully replaced by line_management=split.

Two independant power systems split at the tower
Actual split with anchor attachment Germany

power=tower
line_attachment=anchor
line_management=split

Four splits on two separate towers. If you look at connection, you'll see there is no Y connection and it's only independent power systems that change of direction

Two power circuits split on this tower with an underground transition

A particular situation becoming common thank to networks burying: an old overhead switch anchor pole has been refurbished to split the original overhead line in two sections and connect them to underground cables toward an indoor switching busbar. It's a split since two cables coming from a same origin go different overhead directions.
