The access=no tag indicates that the object is not to be used by the general public, with stronger interdiction than the access=private tag (see explanation). An example would be access roads into military or government facilities. At the entry point, these roads may have barrier=bollards, a barrier=gate, or another type of barrier.
access=no, as any other access=* value may be overridden by more specific access tags. See access=* to see in detail how access restrictions are defined. E.g. a road tagged access=no and psv=yes generally withdraws any legal right of way but permits public service vehicles. A routing program in psv mode may use this way.
This tag is a proper method to mark existing objects such as path as existing but illegal to use. It includes illegal railway crossings, illegal paths through nature reserves etc. Such objects can be mapped but should be tagged as illegal to use by adding access=no.
