maybe i asked it wrong, there is no way per say, it is a land fill and there is something on the top, but to the
tracers looking at bing it looks flat but it is a big mountain, on the one hand or a big hole in the case
of an reintion dry pond
in the case of a road, on the top of a mound or below street leave.
that is to show that these things are not on the ground leave.

I think that there is a miss-conception here. If you want to talk about the wall the retains the earth, this is the dyke. The embankment is more then a wall and is at least as large as the road and made of resistant material.  The wiki pages  https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:embankment and  https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:man_made%3Dembankment do not accept usage of polygones with these tags.
see description of embankments in  https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/engineering/highway-embankment

You should have read "right side of way" : it's the side on your right when you follow the way in its direction.
