Answers to: Can two ways share a node if they do not intersect?https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/52382/can-two-ways-share-a-node-if-they-do-not-intersect<p>Can two ways share a node if they do not intersect? For example, <a href="https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2998872922">node 2998872922</a> is part of <a href="https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/26231131">way 26231131</a> and part of <a href="https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/29509614">way 29509614</a>. However, these two ways <em>do not actually intersect</em>: way 29509614 is just a bridge over way 26231131 (and the node appears at the lat-long coordinates where they cross, even though they don't intersect).</p>
<p>Is this correctly represented on OSM? Or is this an editing error?</p>enMon, 10 Oct 2016 05:22:42 +0100Comment by NZGraham on gboeing's questionhttps://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/52382/can-two-ways-share-a-node-if-they-do-not-intersect#52433<p>Based on the answers already given I have updated the map - changeset 42767852.<br>
I disconnected node 2998872922 from Freeway 29509614 and Service road 26231131. I left the node as part of way 260845588 which is an administrative boundary.<br>
If anyone disagrees with my actions please feel free to correct the editing.</p>NZGrahamMon, 10 Oct 2016 05:22:42 +0100https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/52382/can-two-ways-share-a-node-if-they-do-not-intersect#52433Comment by andy mackey on Alecs01's answerhttps://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/52382/can-two-ways-share-a-node-if-they-do-not-intersect#52432<p>and routing will be incorrect.</p>andy mackeySun, 09 Oct 2016 22:15:57 +0100https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/52382/can-two-ways-share-a-node-if-they-do-not-intersect#52432Answer by Alecs01https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/52382/can-two-ways-share-a-node-if-they-do-not-intersect/52383<p>It's a mistake, a node in common between two roads means there is an intersection.</p>Alecs01Thu, 06 Oct 2016 20:21:41 +0100https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/52382/can-two-ways-share-a-node-if-they-do-not-intersect/52383
