hello Team,

I have a an instance where the road speed is 50 kmph in one direction but it is 70 kmph in the other direction. Does OSM have any features to change the road speed on the same road based on direction i.e. if a vehicle is driving north to south, it will have a speed limit of 50 but south to north will have a speed limit of 70.

Best regards,

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Forward_%26_backward,left%26_right Check way direction direction from arrows in editors, then tag maxspeed:forward= and maxspeed:backward= respectively.
