# How to tag a road that is oneway only in some parts?

 4 Hi I've got a road with six nodes. let's start a drawing ---+A -------->+B-----------------------+C<------+D------- with + should represent crossroads. AB is oneway from A to B BC is with no restriction CD is oneway from D to C As the road is the same with continuous numerotation, same name ... How should I render it for best ? Thanks for your answer. asked 01 Sep '10, 18:20 Ebeer 61●1●2●3 accept rate: 0% Gnonthgol ♦ 13.8k●16●103●198 You say "How should I render it". Are you trying to build or configure a rendering system, and encountering this problem in the data? ...or perhaps you just mean "How should I map it"? (how to arrange the ways and tag it within the editor) (04 Sep '10, 12:22) Harry Wood

 7 You should split the way at the nodes and then apply the oneway=yes tag only to those ways where it applies, reversing the way where needed. All the tags present in the current way should be the same to the new ways thus specifying that this is the same road. The resulting 5 ways should look something like this: ?A: ref=1, name=Main Street, highway=primary AB: oneway=yes, ref=1, name=Main Street, highway=primary BC: ref=1, name=Main Street, highway=primary DC: oneway=yes, ref=1, name=Main Street, highway=primary D?: ref=1, name=Main Street, highway=primary answered 01 Sep '10, 18:42 Gnonthgol ♦ 13.8k●16●103●198 accept rate: 16% Andy Allan 12.5k●23●128●153
