For various reasons highways in the Netherlands are split into segments but very often 2 joining segments have exactly the same tags. In many case there is no reason to have these segments split. In the last 6 months or so we’ve been combining/merging these highways manually (>85.000) using JOSM. See this map with examples (but be patient) that can be used as a WMS in JOSM. Currently I can make a selection of highway pairs that can be combined (key=C in JOSM) without any problem whatsoever. We can keep on doing this manually but this still is a lot of work so I am looking for a way to (semi) automate this. So input is a (long) list of (high)way pairs (derived from a postgis script). Is there any clever /semi automatic way to merge these pairs?
Example of a few pairs:
