How to map
On a node
This can be placed on a linear barrier, in the intersection node of a linear barrier and a highway way, or at a highway way node.
Avoid tagging highway intersections as that does not make clear which way has the impediment.
On a way
Add a node on the intersection between any footways and the gate, also tagged with barrier=gate, much like how crossings are mapped. (This helps routers as many will just ignore the gate if there is no node)
Also remember to add the access (e.g. access=private) to the path or road beyond the gate. Add access=yes and access:conditional if the access level changes under circumstances like snow, ice, or flooding.
Based on the location below, the gate node should be the end of a way. A new way starts with the gate node and it should have the access set to private if the access is restricted.
O= node with barrier=gate
+++++way with access=private
