This is a part of landuse that is missing on Openstreetmap. There is a term used for this in road planning. It is called a “road reserve” which includes all parts of the road components. The surfaced carriageways, central reservations, hard and soft shoulders, sidewalks (pavements), buffer zones, verges, embankments, sound barriers.  Any work that needs to be carried out within the area of the reserve requires permission from the government or local authority that is responsible for that section of the road reserve.

I would think `landuse=highway` would work kind of like `landuse=railway`, used to map a right of way corridor, not the actual asphalt surface.
