  Please, look at a proposal


We have some tags on ways and relations, which describe routes, for
example, European routes (see WikiProject Europe/E-road network). The
network has some gaps, which are caused by formal reasons. For
example, there is Route 1, which goes to the City, or through the
City, and there is Route 2, which goes near the City at distance, for
example, 10 kilometers. Formally there is no exact connection of this


E-road network can be used, for example, for creating generalized map
of whole Europe. If we get only roads, which are marked with int_ref=E
ХХ and/or belongs to relations of European route, the resulted map
will be not fully united.


The text below is related to European routes, but the proposal can be
extended to another networks.
It is proposed to connect European routes in situations, when the
connection is obviously existed (there is a road of appropriate
status, which connects European routes), by relations.

from=<number of first European route>
to=<number of second European route>

type=route - this is a route
route=road - this is a route for motorcars
network=e-road - this is a cars' route, which is related to E-road network
e-road=A_link - this is a connecting route between two European routes
of class A
from and to - European routes, which are connected

Example: Relations for connecting E 95 and E 105 near Saint Petersburg
- 2814607 and 2814608.
from = E 95
network = e-road
e-road = A_link
route = road
to = E 105
type = route
