Yours is a common & increasing misunderstanding of relations. There's a
a) Everything has to be linked together.
b) Relations are the only way to link them.
You're also misunderstanding the purpose of the route relation which is
to indicate a regular, often used path taken by travellers which cross
*different* roads, paths, rivers etc.
Duplication of data leads to confusion, wasted time & errors.
Please refrain from mapping in this way.

The way it's known is by it's reference number. It does not have a name.
This is just more unnecessary duplication.
