>>Ditto. I typically do all roads in hospitals, supermarket car parks, hotel resorts and closed industrial estates this way. I also try and mark the gate(s) where I can; I understand this will be rendered nicely in the next version of OSMarender about to be released.

There are two supermarket car parks here where I've drawn a short stub "service" road to show where the entrance is. Sometimes I continue it through the car park if it is well defined on the ground. The supermarket itself does not currently render. This is how I normally do it, but I don't suggest it is the only or indeed the best way to do it.
