|route = road|
|Relation type used to combine road sections.|

|Status: in use|
|Tools for this tag|
This relation is mainly used for major routes which have a ref=*. A value for ref=* may be unique in a smaller area (such as a city), but not in a larger area (such as a country); adding roads to a relation allows to distinguish parts of roads that are related and to make roles between parts of roads explicit. Most urban streets and minor roads which are identified only by a name=* tag do not belong to a relation.
|TMC:cid_(CID):tabcd_(TABCD):LocationCode||ID-number transmitted in electronic traffic-messages that identifies this road. See TMC_Import_Germany and TMC:LocationCode=* for TMC-locations.|
