Usage

A transition is a location change, often when overhead line connects to underground cables.

This value is only suitable for overhead lines that stop. For underground cables connecting to a continuous overhead line, see branch. This value should be used in combination with existing location:transition=yes.

This value can't be combined with itself, cross and straight to describe several situations on the same support level.

Examples

Power portal substation transition.jpg France

power=insulator
line_attachment=anchor
line_management=transition

The concrete portal should be mapped as a way and the line should connect to it on a power=insulator node. A bay line (inside the substation) connects to the incoming line, it's a transition from the management point of view
Power tower split transition.jpg France

power=tower
line_attachment=anchor
line_management=split|transition
location:transition=yes

Two power circuits split on this tower with an underground transition
A transition France

power=pole
line_attachment=anchor
line_management=transition
location:transition=yes

A medium voltage overhead power line connects to an undergound power cable on a pole. It's a straignt connection without situation like branch or split so it's a transition.
