I came across a tagging problem. How to tag a road thats closed (by sign) for bicycles and mopeds (C15) but not for pedestrians (C16) ? Itsnt logic though, at the end is farmland and a track through woodlands ? A crossing way has a signs with added no agricultural traffic (C9) but not a sign against pedestrians. Leave pedestrians unset ? IMHO its not right. Theres no rule against walking alongside the road, it might be unpleasant but I wont to go to the farmland. So I would tag pedestrians allowed, sidewalks none. Any ideas ?

Just add the appropriate access tags as described on the road signs wiki page. If there is no sign forbidding pedestrians then you don't have to add any further tag because foot=yes is the default for most way types.

In your specific case a vehicle=no seems sufficient as it forbids bicycles, moped and any other motorized vehicle.

Sorry Scai, but I didnt mention that motorized vehicles (cars) were allowed to go, so walking alongside it could not be very pleasant. Thats just the puzzle, Id love to walk and will go without a sign 'dont go' or a prohibition order.

So use bicycle=no and moped=no, I don't see the problem here. Whether walking is pleasant or not is totally irrelevant as long as it is legally allowed.
