Near me, the Departmental road passes in a short tunnel under a railway line with a height limit of 3.5metres. I can't see the correct way to indicate this limit using Potlatch2. This is essential traffic information because its a long way to go back and take the alternative route without this height restriction.

So how can I add this information to the road / tunnel?

See Key:maxheight

In your case add the combination maxheight=3.5. Use it only on the segment where the height is limited (split if needed). You can go to the advanced tab and enter it there if it is not in the menu.

In Potlatch you can click on the tunnel and then the "advanced" tab at the bottom. Then you can add the key maxheight with the value "3.5". You can go back to the previous tab by clicking "Simple".

Just add maxheight=3.5 to the tunnel where this restriction applies.
