Description

Indicates a way which has frequent passing places, which might or might not be mapped individually.

The location of highway places is not important - to indicate the location of the passing places themselves use highway=passing_place.

This has nothing to do with three lane sections of two lane highways to help overtaking of slower vehicles.

How to map

Applies to

Mf way.png which is a highway of any type and (usually) has lanes=1
passing_places=yes or passing_places=no

Passing place nodes might exist on any highway which has lanes=* with any value below 2, e.g. 1 or 1.5, likely if frequent hgv traffic is present.

Values

Mf way.png

  • passing_places=yes Way has frequent passing places, which might or might not be mapped individually. If intersections facilitating passing are frequent, they qualify as make-do passing places.
  • passing_places=no Passing places don't exist frequently or at all along this way.
