Hi,using barrier=gate on a single node and therefore the width key is the documented approach in the wiki. :-) However as far as I know there is nothing specifying the thickness of the gate. Andreas

The key "width" can only be applied to a way, not to a node (e.g. a gate).

You could make separate nodes for the two gateposts, with a connecting way to represent the gate itself, and apply the width tag to that way.
To me the easiest answer is to use barrier=gate, width=xxx.

I can not see any reason why you should not use width for a node, if it is the sort of node that has a width, like a gate, doorway etc.
