Proposal / approval status?

The current page says this tag is approved, but I am unable to find any previous proposal that mentions "jersey_barrier"

There is also a suggestion to use barrier=wall with wall=jersey_barrier on the page for Tag:barrier=wall although this is much less commonly used.

I am going to change the status to "de facto", but please correct this and provide a link to the approved proposal if possible. --Jeisenbe (talk) 23:45, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

I was wrong, there was a proposal. I've fixed the status: Proposed_features/New_barrier_types
Also, we discussed this on the Tagging list, and while the term "Jersey Barrier" is originally American, it does not seem to be a problem for British English; it's just not a common feature there. --Jeisenbe (talk) 13:24, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

"You should also add further tags to more fully specify what kinds of vehicle or foot traffic have reasonably unhindered access using access=*" - this implies that access=* is a physical restriction but as defined on access=* page it's supposed to be a legal one.
