if the cycleway is a track it can become a problem, because tracks tend to
have different properties than the road, and now you will have to split the
road also for every change of every property of a different carriageway
(the cycleway), which doesn't seem right and which makes maintenance
harder. It isn't a big problem as long as you do not map many details or
accurately map changes in properties, or if they do not vary.
It also makes it harder to understand how the position of other objects
relates to the cycleway and to the road (are they between the road and the
cycleway or further than the cycleway? etc.) and it makes it impossible to
map geometric shapes and transitions of the cycleway which are different
from the road.
