The barrier tag is usually used for nodes along ways where travel is restricted by an obstacle. It is offered as a cleaner alternative to using highway=gate etc. It also covers ways (e.g. fences) that are themselves obstacles.
|barrier||hedge||is a line of closely spaced shrubs and bushes, planted and trained in such a way as to form a barrier or to mark the boundary of an area.|
|barrier||fence||a freestanding structure designed to restrict or prevent movement across a boundary. It is generally distinguished from a wall by the lightness of its construction.|
|barrier||wall||a freestanding structure designed to restrict or prevent movement across a boundary made from solid brick, concrete rocks, and almost always built so that it is opaque to vision.|
|barrier||ditch||A trench, ditch or ravine, usually with a stream at the bottom, that is not easily crossed, especially if not on foot. Can be used in combination with waterway=stream or waterway=drain|
|Linear barriers with sides|
|barrier||retaining_wall|| is a structure that holds back soil or rock from a building, structure or area. Retaining walls prevent downslope movement or erosion and provide support for vertical or near-vertical grade changes.
|barrier||city_wall|| Is a fortification used to defend a city or settlement from potential aggressors. From ancient to modern times, they are used to enclose settlements.
|barrier||bollard||solid (usually concrete or metal) pillar or pillars in the middle of the road to prevent passage by some traffic.|
|barrier||cycle_barrier||Barriers to bicycle traffic, most typically a pair of staggered steel bars perpendicular to the way itself whose gaps allow pedestrians to pass.|
|barrier||cattle_grid||Bars in the road surface that allow wheeled vehicles but not animals to cross. Sometimes known as a Texas Gate, even outside of Texas|
|barrier||toll_booth||A road usage toll or fee is collected here|
|barrier||entrance||A hole in a linear barrier with no specific construction that limits passing through. access=yes is understood. the limitations are the same of the way that crosses it, if there is such.|
|barrier||gate||An entrance that can be opened or closed to get through the barrier. Combine with access=* where appropriate.|
|barrier||stile||A stile allows pedestrians to cross a wall or fence, but never actually "opens" the barrier (unlike a gate, a stile has few or no moving parts).|
|barrier||sally_port||A sally_port is used to pass through thick or city walls, and is a type of covered gate with two doors.|
