This is really more an issue for the "tagging" mailing list rather
than "talk-gb", I guess. Anyway I think people already use
construction tags for the purposes you have in mind. This wiki page
describes how to use (including a tag for estimated finish date):

> Hi all,
> I think we need road works features for the map - with restrictions as to
> their use:
> Only for closures - where rerouting is necessary
> Only for works affecting more than 1 day (as otherwise not really worth the
> effort to put on)
> Not generally for use re closures re accidents and incidents (but only due
> to short time effects).
> Ideal for cases where the bridge has washed away in the floods etc. and
> repairs will take months.
> Can we please discuss and wikify ?
> Proposed road works:
> Existing road works: http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/335558485
> Possible Issues:
> Naming - 'road works' is clearly not enough. adding a finishing date code
> would enable anyone to find finished works to reinstate the road (provided
> works don't go over time)
> by area ?
> maintenance of data?
> Ok, that's some outline ideas... discuss !
