#11232 new enhancement

Description (last modified by mkoniecz)

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. create way
  2. add highway=motorway and construction=yes
  3. run validator

What is the expected result?

Validator complains ("highway=construction, construction=* is a superior tagging scheme to highway=* construction=yes").

What happens instead?


Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if possible.

In #11146 I was asking for validator rule with an automated fix that is currently impossible to nicely implement. Here I am asking just for message from validator.

There are two methods for mapping road under construction[1]. One is [highway=construction; construction=*], second is [highway=*; construction=yes].

First method is significantly better as it is easier to process and not processing construction-related values is not resulting in wrong data (fail-safe tagging).

In addition construction=yes is used 3366 times with highway=*, highway=construction is used 79730 times[2].

[highway=construction; construction=*] also has wider support (for examples see JOSM and default map style).
