You always have "border cases". Like going from a tertiary to a unclassified
road. but I think the following two ways are different. (we don't have
streetview in belgium, so you'll have to do it with aerial photo's).
The path crossing the Westlaan:
The path next to the Sleihagestraat:
Both ways are separated from a car-road. so both would have the tag
@Martin: this is right too, you aren't allowed to drive on the
Sleihagestraat with your bike.
I have a feeling that there might be a difference between countries. In
Belgium, a separated cycle track is just one where they planted a little
hedge between the cycle track and the car-road. In the Netherlands, the
separated cycle tracks seem more developed.
In dutch (at least in flemish) we also have different words. We use
"fietspad" for a track next to a road but never for a solitaire track, and
just "pad" or "paadje" for a solitaire track.
