|Tools for this tag|
A traffic island is a structure separating at least two lanes of a highway for a short distance. The width of the island is usually under a few meters.
The island doesn't necessarily have to have a right-of-way indicator. For islands at junctions or traffic lights this tag is also appropriate.
How to map
Apply a node at the object, or draw a line on the object.
- One possible rendering may be as a small hollow dot in the middle of a node, or a small hollow line in the middle of a way. When creating software, these choices are yours.
- None, currently, by the osm-carto layer.
- iD-Editor: Example-object
- crossing:island=* - Specifies whether a pedestrian crossing has a refuge island
- highway=mini_roundabout - A road junction where the traffic goes around a painted circle or traversable island and has right of way.
- crossing=island - Further refinement for nodes already tagged with highway=crossing or railway=crossing
- The proposal landuse=traffic_island for a pedestrian refuge on roads was abandoned.
