OK, can I get some clarification here please?
A sharrow does not describe what type of cycleway it is, or whereabouts
it is, but purely some painted lines on the road in the form a chevron
arrows as a sign.
Is this correct?
If so, I personally wouldn't bother, but if you feel the need to, please
don't use it to try & fudge a description of a cycleway which already
has far to convoluted tagging system.
