Status: in use

Use cycleway=opposite_track in combination with oneway:bicycle=no for a contraflow cycle track, that is, a cycle track travelling in the opposite direction to other traffic on a oneway=yes road.

Consider using the cycleway:left=track or cycleway:right=track in combination with oneway:bicycle=no instead, as this describes on which side the contraflow track is. Use cycleway:both=track or cycleway=track to indicate they are on both sides.

If a track is bi-directional, see cycleway:left:oneway=* or cycleway:right:oneway=*

Mapping as a separate path

Mapping the track as separate highway=cycleway is also possible, more flexible/precise but more work/care needed around crossings.

Deprecated in the Netherlands

This tag is deprecated in the Netherlands. Please don't add it and use oneway:bicycle=no plus cycleway:both=track, cycleway:left=track or cycleway:right=track instead.
