|Tools for this tag|
This relation is rarely used compared to the total number of roads in Openstreetmap. It is usually unnecessary to add these relations, because database users can combine connected highway=* ways which share characteristics such as the same name=* and ref=*.
- Relations/Routes for another way how to tag routes.
- Relation:route#Road_routes types of road-networks this route may be a part of
Relations tagged route=road may have the following tags in addition to the ones described in Relations/Routes:
|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.|
