Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


In my area, there are two roads interconnected, so it seems crossable, but what happens in reality is that there is some sort of fence, (cement block + chain) at the end of one road.

So you can cross on foot, bicycle but definitely not by car. How should I represent such obstacle ? Does it makes sense to disconnect the roads and add some kind of footway at the end ?

Thanks, very interesting and relevant, it seems in my case it would rather be a barrier=block.
