Used to identify roads which contain a shared lane marking, or sharrow, to indicate that the travel lane is shared by bicycles and other vehicles.
The road markings are usually there to highlight a cycle route or to remind drivers that you can cycle there, still allowing vehicles to drive or even park on them.
In the Netherlands and Belgium in particular, the tag is also used to indicate suggestion cycle lanes ( on Wikipedia). To distinguish between the two, it can additionally be tagged with cycleway:lane=pictogram for sharrows or cycleway:lane=advisory for suggestion cycle lanes respectively.
See Proposed features/shared lane for more detail.
How to map
If there are sharrows only on one side, add:
- cycleway:left=shared_lane - markings on the left side (by way direction)
- cycleway:right=shared_lane - markings on the right side (by way direction)
To explicitly tag markings on both sides of the road, add:
