We had a similar discussion in Nov 2018. In Indonesia these sort of
archways often have the name of the neighborhood:


Apparently in Argentina they map these as "artwork":

"In Argentina we discussed this a few years ago and decided to use artwork
together with artwork_type = city_entrance"

But some others did not like that idea.

I suggested "Man_made=entrance_arch"

Another mapper says they used "man_made=gantry"

It was also mentioned that one should add "maxheight=" to the way which
goes under it.
