Hi which part of a wall alongside a waterway should be on the map. That is 0.65 on top and at the bottom up to 1,80. Just retaining wall ? Or as a building for what it is, you can open doors and walk into it.

I'm confused by your description. Is this a building or a wall that gives access to a cellar or similar?

Hi guys, I would say come along and w'll see, but a photo in OSM ? I am sorry but I can't do that. The construction is an old lock (sluiskom) with downstreams normal doors and upstreams a special kind of waaierdoors 2 doors in one construction. They can be openened against the highwater on the outside, due to inside sewers (canals) inside the building. Here is one in function The up or downstream water pressure is applied to the waaierdoor (the wing shaped form) and it moves into or up against the high tide. One of a kind system I dont know if it is in use in the World. It is a Dutch invention good for the Low Lands.

If the wall is a barrier but has a route through it i would split the wall into two sections and continue the path or way through the gap.

One can simply add barrier=entrance for this, but I doubt this is what's being answered.
