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

Hey guys,

For a few days I have been looking into the Overpass API but so far I have been unable to get the exact results I want.

I want to get a segment of a motorway, from one point to the other (LatLng points). The point are within a 25m radius from the actual motorway, so fault tolerance is close to zero. So far, so good. However I also would like to get only the way that actually goes into the direction (which is derived from the start and end position). Any ideas?

You might think of using PostGIS after importing the data via OSM2PqSQL
