A swing gate is similar to a barrier=lift_gate but rotates sideways to open. It is usually made out of metal bars (although wood or other materials are possible, and can be tagged with material=*) and is intended to prevent limit vehicular access to authorized vehicles, but still permit general access by pedestrians and cyclists. Combine with access=* where appropriate.
|swing_gate:type=*||single||The road is blocked using one bar.|
|swing_gate:type=*||double||The road is blocked using two bars.|
