We need this kind of barrier defined --http://chris-researchblog.blogspot.com/ 09:41, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
What does "access=yes is understood" mean? Is access=yes implied like in the german version of the page?
- yes, from my understanding it is implied by default but as always might be overruled by explicit access tags. —Dieterdreist (talk) 20:47, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
Do we really need this?
I know there is a fair amount of use of this tag and it has been used since 2009, but is it really necessary to have this tag?
Using the example wiki image:
Instead of making a single way representing the wall and a barrier=entrance at the intersection of the street:
Why not simply represent the object as it really is without using a continuous wall/barrier/way?
- In situations like this I would also map the gap in geometry, but there is also the situation of a hole inside a fence or wall.—Dieterdreist (talk) 20:56, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
- While there's something to be said for the simplicity of just leaving a gap in the linear barrier, one benefit of using a barrier=entrance node is the ability to add tags like access or maxwidth to it. --Tordanik 15:52, 1 August 2019 (UTC)
