A holding position (or holding point) is a location behind which aircraft (or vehicle) must stop in order to be safely clear of an intersecting runway or taxiway. They may be known as a "LAHSO point" - "Land And Hold Short Of".

They're marked on the way perpendicular to and extending across the full width of the taxiway. The combination of lines indicates what type of holding point it is:

  • Runway-holding position:

They're found on taxiways near where they enter or cross a runway or where two runways cross.

Pattern A: four yellow lines - two solid and two dashed - with the solid lines on the side where the aircraft is to hold.
Pattern B: Two solid yellow lines with pairs of perpendicular solid stripes in between.
  • Intermediate holding position:

They're found near the intersection of two taxiways cross or at the exit boundary of a remote de-icing/anti-icing facility adjoining a taxiway.

An intermediate holding position marking shall consist of a single broken line.

Holding positions are not currently rendered on Mapnik.

How to Map

Place a node node at the location of the holding point on the way and add aeroway=holding_position.

Note

Not the same as a Holding pattern (a maneuver designed to delay an aircraft already in flight while keeping it within a specified airspace).
