route=road used to specify a specific kind route relation Relation:route. It is used to identify road networks and needs to be combined with Relation:route#Road_routes.

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=*.
