Use footway=crossing, together with highway=footway, to tag perpendicular sections of footway at a crossing point between two sidewalks tagged as separate way or between the footway-road intersection nodes of a dual carriageway.

If sidewalks are mapped as property on the street and the road is just a single way in OSM, there is no need for a perpendicular way and this tag. See Sidewalks for more details and a comparison of the two tagging approaches.

See also the comprehensive explanation for bicycle way tagging.

Segregated "foot & bicycle" crossing

Method 1 (one linear way):

highway=path

+ path=crossing

+ foot=designated

+ bicycle=designated

+ segregated=yes

  • Foot crossing:

area:highway=* (class of highway which footway is crossing with, eg. area:highway=primary)

+ junction=yes

  • Bicycle crossing:

area:highway=* (class of highway which footway is crossing with, eg. area:highway=primary)

+ junction=yes

+ bicycle=yes

Segregated path crossing diagram.jpg Segregated crossing (foot - path).jpg
Method 2 (two linear ways):
  • Through foot part:

highway=footway

+ footway=crossing

  • Through bicycle part:

highway=cycleway

+ cycleway=crossing

Segregated "foot & bicycle" crossing with traffic calming island

Method 1 (one linear way):
  • Foot crossings:

area:highway=* (class of highway which footway is crossing with, eg. area:highway=primary)

+ junction=yes

  • Bicycle crossings:

area:highway=* (class of highway which footway is crossing with, eg. area:highway=primary)

+ junction=yes

+ bicycle=yes

  • Foot part of the island:

area:highway=footway

  • Bicycle part of the island:

area:highway=cycleway

  • Side parts of the island:

landuse=grass or leisure=garden or traffic_calming=island
