Usage

This value indicates there is no connection between two or more lines coming from different directions punctualy sharing a given support at different levels. It avoids the use of tags like connection=no. It is intended to simplify tagging by avoiding values line_management=(straight)|(straight) (complete cross) or line_management=(straight)|(termination) (incomplete Y).

If levels are connected, it's a simple branch and line_management=branch applies.

This value can't be combined with any other to describe situations on the same support level.

Possible mistakes

Only branch supports combined with branch:type=cross should be carefully replaced by line_management=cross.

If you know places with this tag, verify if it could be tagged with another tag.

This is not a valid situation for line_management=cross. Lines have to share a common support without connection to be considered crossing.

Two different lines share a single tower here and cross their directions. It's an actual cross tower.
