So I’m looking at the OSM data for where I live (Los Angeles County, United States), and I’m finding lots of opportunities to improve the metadata about lanes of travel / turn lanes / cycleways. One thing I’m trying to figure out how to handle are cases where the
cycleway:right tag needs different values depending on whether the road segment direction is
To give a concrete example. Let’s say I have a
forward road segment with a
cycleway:right = lane, and at the end of that segment is an intersection. About 100 ft (~30m) from the intersection that
cycleway:right becomes a
shared_lane since it’s both a bicycle lane and a right turn lane. How do I make it so that the
backward representation of the same segment doesn’t also set the
cycleway:right = shared_lane, since in that direction it’s not shared but is instead a dedicated bicycle lane?
It’s almost like I want to have a
cycleway:forward:right tag that I can set to
shared_lane and a
cycleway:backward:right tag that I want to keep as
Am I missing some way to handle this?
