3.3.2. Attribution rules of sections

The attribute panel for a section of road looks like this:

Techniques for adding attributes to road sections are similar to the techniques for adding attributes to all items on YME.

When you add attributes to roads, pay attention to how you assign attributes to road signs that are linked to intersections.

When you add attributes to road sections, follow the rules that apply specifically to them. The attributes for Sections of road are listed below, as well as the rules for entering values for each of them:

Attention.

By attributing a section of the road as well as the road as a whole (see Section 3.3.3. The rules for attributing roads). It is necessary to control for the consistency of the specified values.

For example, if you enter Tunnel as the Type of structure for a section of road, then the Level A and Level B attributes should have negative values.

3.3.2.1. Class

All roads on the national map are classified by their significance in the transportation system: each road element is assigned a specific attribute value Class.

The road class is determined by the types and sizes of localities (and other important features) it connects, as well as by its role in shaping the connectivity of the road network.

To a lesser extent, the road class defines its physical characteristics. However, the fact that a highway has an identification number does not affect its significance.

This means that a narrow single-lane road connecting two cities will be assigned a higher class than a two-carriageway road with a median that connects districts within a single city.

When you enter a road class, follow the descriptions of each road class given below, as well as these rules:

  • When selecting a road class, you must preserve how the road is connected to the network: each class of road should connect to roads of higher classes to form a united (connected) network. See point 3.3.1.1.1.

    In particular, keep this point in mind to avoid lowering a road's class in areas where it passes through localities (if there are no roads that circumvent those localities).

    Additionally, roads of a particular class should not be connected to the remaining road network exclusively by roads of a lower class. The connection to the network should happen via roads of the same or a higher class. Exceptions are only allowed for areas that are isolated from the main road network.

  • When there are several roads of the same significance, select the main ones and the ones that are preferable for transit traffic. Assign those ones a higher class. This is particularly necessary in order to avoid assigning the same class to too many roads in city centers.

  • Roads and exit lanes that connect roads of different classes at intersections and interchanges are assigned the lowest class among the roads being connected, even in cases where the exit lane can serve as a frontage road to the main highway:

    • At the exit from a high-class highway to a low-class one, enter the functional class of the lowest class highway for the connecting road or exit. Start from the point where it branches off (i.e. from the beginning of the turn or exit).
    • At the entrance from a low-class highway to a high-class one, enter the functional class of the lowest class highway for the connecting road or exit up to the point where they join (i.e. from the beginning of the turn or exit).
    • At the same time, at junctions and intersections of roads of three or more classes, a situation may arise when there are exits that are on the formal the attribute must be assigned to the same class, actually belong to another-this is where they should be assigned when mapping.
    • Example 1. The intersection of road #1 (class 2), road #2 (class 5) and road #3 (class 6) is shown in the drawing.
    • Exits #4, 5, 6 and 7 connect roads #1 and 2, so based on that formal characteristic and their position in the road network, the exits should be assigned the lowest class from among the classes of connecting roads — class 5.
    • Within this same road interchange though, exits #8 and 9 actually connect roads #1 and 3, so the exits should be assigned class 6:
    • Example 2 A class-4 road passes through an intersection (purple in the drawing); two other roads cross the intersection: a class-6 road (yellow) and a class-7 road (green).
    • Furthermore, the following notes apply to the intersecting parts:
    • a) Those marked with red arrows connect class-4 roads
    • b) Those marked with blue arrows connect class-6 and class-4 roads (the upper part provides passage from the class-4 road on the left and onto the class-6 road, the right part provides passage from the class-6 road up and onto the class-4 road).
    • Therefore, the classes of intersecting road sections should be assigned according to the following rules:
  • A circular road section will take the same class as the highest class road that intersects with it.

  • On a road drawn using two lines, any road sections used to make u-turns should have the same class as the road itself:

    If the u-turn is a continuation of a side road (for example, at a " T " intersection) and is not a u-turn (see 3.3.2.7.6), it gets the class of the side road (see also points. 3.3.1.5.3.6 and 3.3.1.5.3.7):

    If the u-turn or exit is a continuation of a side road class 8 or Nine, then their class goes up to class 7:

    If the intersection of the highest-class road does not change the direction, and the u-bridge is a continuation of the adjacent roads of different classes, its class is set as the highest class of the adjacent roads.:

Note.

Other than the road section class, roads are generally characterized as being a type of road, which is specified in the road editing panel. See Section 3.3.3.2. Type of road.

Choose the road class from the list (only a partial list is shown in the drawing):

When you hold your cursor over an entry in the list, you'll see a icon appear on the right side. Hold your cursor over that icon to see a tool tip (i.e. a short description of that road class):

A road element class is set according to the rules for selecting attribute values for specific roads:

3.3.2.1.1. Freeways (class 1)

National highways that have the official Freeway or Speedway status and inner-city rapid transit motorways form class 1.

Roads of class 1 and 2 complement one another and should form a connected network. For example, the section of highway E-30 in Poland in the area of mińsk Mazowiecki.

3.3.2.1.2. Public roads (class 2)

Motorways of national and international significance that form the main body of the road network in large and mid-size countries and are the main transit highways in small countries that connect the capitals (or major cities) of neighboring states form class 2.

In large countries, this road network connects the administrative centers of second-level administrative divisions.

In large countries, this type may also include major inter-regional roads that connect several centers of second-level administrative divisions.

Roads that are part of transcontinental international highway networks belong to this class.

3.3.2.1.3. Inter-regional roads (class 3)

Roads of regional and interregional significance form class 3:

  • Secondary paved highways connecting neighboring countries

  • Roads leading to major cities from classes 1-2 of the road network

  • Highways linking neighboring second-level administrative divisions

In major cities and agglomerations, the most significant outbound roads also belong to this class.

In sparsely populated, sprawling territories, this level also includes internal roads that are at least 150 km long.

3.3.2.1.4. Regional roads (class 4)

Key roads of intraregional significance within second-level administrative divisions form class 4:

  • Main roads that link to each other

    • Centers of third-level administrative divisions

    • The largest localities (for that country) that have district centers and either roads of class 1-3 or neighboring districts (if the road in question wasn't assigned a higher class)

  • In widespread and sparsely populated areas: roads at least 50 km in length that connect 5-10 rural localities along with roads of higher classes or lead to townships with populations of at least 5,000.

  • In localities with populations over 100,000, outbound highways that are intra-regional and main thoroughfares (other than those that belong to higher classes)

If a class 4 road ends within a locality, then it should lead to a central square, vehicle station, or a central intersections.

Within localities, roads of this class may lead to popular transport, social, or cultural attractions of state significance.

Note.

The roads are unpaved, leading to administrative centers third-level administrative units, belong to class 4 not follow.

3.3.2.1.5 District roads (Class 5)

Key roads within third-level administrative divisions that were not assigned to a higher class form class 5.

This class includes roads that are not urban and run through several small localities (or lead to one major locality) and connect the latter to roads of class 1-4.

Within localities, roads of this type may lead to extremely popular transport, social, or cultural items of regional significance.

In cities with populations greater than 100,000, class 5 roads include large transit streets that link neighboring parts of a city, and outbound highways that continue past the city as local roads leading to rural localities.

In localities with populations of less than 100,000, class 5 include major transit roads through the city (when there are roads of class 1-4 that circumscribe the city).

If a class 4 road ends within a locality, then it should lead to a central square, vehicle station, or a central intersections.

3.3.2.1.6. Local roads (class 6)

Main local roads

Outside of localities, this class includes roads that are not included in classes 1-5 and that lead to separate localities, rural settlements, and farmers co-ops (or groups of localities that are located in the same area). These roads are not connected to the main road network via roads of a higher class.

In major rural developments (including farmers co-ops and rural (dacha) settlements) this class includes highways and roads that lead to extremely popular transport, social and cultural items of regional significance.

In localities, class 6 roads include main streets that are set off from urban zones (districts, subdistricts or localities that are part of the city), secondary transit streets that are connected to neighboring areas of the city (such as exits from isolated city zones), and frontage roads with no less than three traffic lanes that run adjacent to highways of class 1-4 (see point 3.3.2.7.5).

In small localities, this class is used to represent the main transit road when a road of class 1-5 that circumvents the city is present.

If a road of that class ends in a locality, then it should lead to a central intersections.

Keep in mind that the physical characteristics of roads of this class may notably differ from one another. For example, the multi-lane Bogatyrsky Ave. in Saint Petersburg is a class 6 road:



As is Tatishcheva St. in Yekaterinburg:



3.3.2.1.7. Road minimum significance (class 7)

This class includes all local roads that have proper names and do not belong to class 1-6, but are technically suitable for motor traffic (even if traffic is prohibited or the street is labeled a pedestrian zone). It also includes unnamed passageways and intersections that handle the same traffic that the connecting roads do.

In rural localities and farming co-ops with unnamed streets, class 7 only includes the main roads in farming and rural (dacha) communities.

Exceptions to this rule are major roads used to enter/exit or transit within multistory blocks that cover a large area (including unnamed streets), and main roads on major cemetery grounds.

You can indicate whether or not streets of this class are accessible to pedestrians using the Accessible to attribute (indicate this attribute for streets like Arbat in Moscow or Bolshoy Pokrovskaya St. in Nizhniy Novgorod).

Central alleys and streets in pedestrian zones (like parks, cultural monuments, sports and recreation areas, etc.) that can be used by technical service vehicles also relate to this class. Enter the accessible to pedestrians and bicyclists attribute for these roads.

Outside of cities, class 7 roads include paved roads leading to small localities and farming co-ops that are between 1-5 km in length, as well as re-enforced dirt, forest, or field roads (including those that run through shallow riverbeds), and winter roads that are the main or preferred route to a rural locality or a farming co-op.

At least one road of this class or higher should lead to every populated locality.

Outside of localities, class 7 includes paved roads that lead to transport-related structures and agricultural items, recreational areas, camps for children, local attractions, and networks of technological paved roads within broad industrial areas or territories.

Additionally, this class includes all trails at major ski resorts that are located within developed areas of localities (like Bukovel and Roza-Khutor) as well as tracks at major car-racing facilities (such as the Formula 1 racing tracks).

Class 7 also includes all roads that are under construction (other than class 10 roads — pedestrian and bike paths) and some frontage roads (see point 3.3.2.7.5).

3.3.2.1.8. Driveways (class 8))

Roads that are only used to get to one concrete place (the entrance of a building, a particular tourist attraction, etc.) and are not used to transit anywhere form class 8:

  • 1) Un-named paths and dead ends on the territory of individual developments
  • 2) Passageways within courtyards or blocks
  • 3) Roads on closed territories: within industrial zones, on the territories of organizations and institutions such as hospitals, hotels, resorts, recreation and wellness centers, etc.
  • 4) Exit ramps going from highways to gas stations or parking lots, roads on the territories of gas stations and parking lots
  • 5) Pieces of secondary named roads on the territories of individual developments (including farming co-ops).
  • 6) Internal passageways on the territories of garage complexes
  • 7) Tracks at medium and small race car, go cart, and motorcycle racing complexes.
  • 8) Frontage roads to class 7 roads (see point 3.3.2.7.5).

This class is typically found in localities. If they are found outside of localities, it is generally only in the cases described in points 3 and 4.

Class 8 roads do not have names.

3.3.2.1.9. Field and forest roads (class 9)

Forest and field unpaved roads (not received a higher class).

In most cases, this class includes insignificant exits from the locality to another locality or to the depth of an unsettled area.

Roads in this class are not commonly found within the borders of localities (with the exception of areas that are not very developed, but are nevertheless parts of localities).

Roads that belong to this class do not have names and are not paved.

If the road network consists of sections of a class-9 road and all entrances are blocked or have restricted access signs, then mark the roads in that network as accessible to bicyclists and pedestrians only.

3.3.2.1.10. Pedestrian and Bicycle paths (class 10)

This class comprises roads that can not physically support vehicles (or traffic laws prohibit vehicle passage on them).

This includes sidewalks; pedestrian roads through parks or cemeteries, within building blocks, or over railways or motorways; staircases, pedestrian bridges and tunnels, and named streets that can not physically be traversed by vehicle (if, for example, they are narrow paved paths).

Additionally, this class includes running tracks at stadiums and sports complexes, equipped ski trails at skiing and biathlon stadiums, and all ski paths within developed areas of localities.

Use the “Pedestrian crosswalks” and Design features attributes for Pedestrian crosswalks.

Assign significant pedestrian paths (such as Arbat St. in Moscow) to class 7 rather than class 10 (see point 3.3.2.1.7).

Note.

See also Color-coding by road type.

3.3.2.2. Street

The panel Street field is used to specify the name of the street (road), which includes the shaded area. The name shows what road the section belongs to.

Attention.

Don't fill out this field for roads of class 8-9.

When you enter the characters that make up the road (street) name in the field, a list of roads (streets) that are already drawn on the map and that have the characters entered in the name field is opened for selection:

When you fill in the field, keep in mind that streets often partially overlap with each other, so a specific section of road may simultaneously belong to several roads with different names. For example, Begovaya St. in Moscow is also part of the Third Transport Circle.

In these cases, you can add the appropriate number of attribute values after you enter the first value.

When you fill in the field:

  • If the street is already on the map, then select its name from the list of suggestions.

  • If the street is not on the map, you must fill in this field manually: enter a name for the new road and it will be created. When you enter road names, follow the Rules for naming roads (see point 3.3.3.3. Name of road).

After the item is saved, its name will appear as a link in the attribute panel:

Clicking this link opens the panel for viewing and editing the road attributes, including its composition (for more information, see 3.3.3. Rules for attributing roads).

For information on setting the “Part of” attribute, also see point 3.3.3.3.3.9; and for sections of road at intersections — point 3.3.1.5.3.5.

3.3.2.3. Available for

In the field “Available for” sets the accessibility of the road element for vehicles (vehicles) and pedestrians. The attribute value is determined by whether it is possible to travel on a road element on different types of vehicles (TS), or to walk on it. Transport accessibility for all types of transport, other than public transport, is determined in this case not a physical possibility drive on a road and traffic and road signs.

The available values convey whether the road is accessible to pedestrians, bicyclists, public transport, trucks, and/or light vehicles.

Click the appropriate button to enter this attribute (click once to indicate that a given section of road is accessible to pedestrians, bicyclists, public transport, trucks, or light vehicles, and click again to indicate that it is inaccessible to that group). When you set the road's accessibility, it is reflected in the pictograph: if the road is inaccessible, the button turns white and the pictograph gets “crossed out”:

When entering attribute values:

3.3.2.3.1

For crossings and sidewalks, only use the “Pedestrian” value.

3.3.2.3.2

For roadways:

3.3.2.3.2.1

You must “use” the Pedestrian value if there is no sidewalk along the motorway, but pedestrians can still walk along the shoulder.

3.3.2.3.2.2

You “can not use” the Pedestrian value for roadways in these cases:

  • If the roadway is class 1 (Freeways).

  • If the road is class 2-7 and it's not physically possible for pedestrians to walk along it (because there is no sidewalk or road shoulder, such as in zones of development).
  • If there is a sidewalk drawn along one side of the road section, and on the other side there is no sidewalk or curb accessible to pedestrians (see Cl. 3.3.1.6.3. Sidewalks).

  • If there are sidewalks that have been drawn along both sides of the road section (see Cl. 3.3.1.6.3. Sidewalks).

    Note.

    Use the pedestrian access value for roads of class 8, even if a sidewalk is drawn along it.

  • If a road that doesn't have a sidewalk (blue in drawing) intersects with a road (brown) that does have a sidewalk (yellow dotted line) and the “Pedestrian” value is disabled for the latter section, then “disable” the Pedestrian value for the section of the first road that runs between the second road and the sidewalk (red arrow):

    Note.

    If pedestrians can only access class 7 roads (for example, private roads), then use the pedestrian access value for the roads in question (even in the case described in the example above).

  • Don't use the “Pedestrian” value for u-turns and intersections on roads drawn using two lines:

3.3.2.3.3

Set the “Bicycle” value for road sections that bicyclists can use in accordance with traffic laws.

Attention.

The rules for setting accessibility values for sections of road that bicyclists can use may differ by country (in accordance with local traffic laws).

3.3.2.3.3.1
For dedicated bike paths (see Cl. 3.3.1.6.5. Bicycle paths)Only indicate the value of this attribute. Furthermore, don't mark bike paths that run parallel to vehicle or pedestrians roads as accessible.
3.3.2.3.3.2
If a pedestrian crosswalk or stairway has a ramp that is accessible on a bicycle, set the attribute value.
3.3.2.3.4

Use the “Public transport” value for all roads of class 1-7.

Attention.

Accessibility for public transport (FROM) on the roads of classes 1-7 can be removed in exceptional cases when this is necessary for the correct operation of the route threads from.

To remove availability FROM is allowed only to users who have rights to work with the route threads FROM (see 3.14.3. Rules for creating and attributing the route options for public transport).

Don't use“ the ”Public transport value for any roads of class 8-10 except for sections that are used for public transport routes (such as traffic circles at ending stops).

Also “don't use” the Public transport value for any of the roads indicated under point 3.3.2.3.6.

3.3.2.3.5
When specifying the attribute values for road sections with “Cars are prohibited”, “Do not enter” road signs, you should indicate Cl. 3.3.1.7. Rules for drawing road barriers.
3.3.2.3.6

For ski tracks, running paths, and other such items, you must use the “Pedestrian” value exclusively.

For runs racing tracks, motorcycle racing tracks and other similar facilities necessary to turn off all attribute values.

3.3.2.4. Direction of movement

Click the appropriate button to enter the appropriate “Direction of traffic” field for each road section (between the beginning A and ending B points):

  • А ⇆ Б — traffic goes in both directions (from А to B and B to A)

  • А → Б — traffic goes from A to B only

  • А ← Б — traffic goes from B to A only

Enter the “Traffic allowed in both directions” value for pedestrian and bike paths.

You can indicate that traffic goes one-way on pedestrian paths in the following situations:

  • Athletic tracks where traffic is set to move permanently in one direction year-round (such as on ski paths, bike tracks, etc.).

  • Entrances and exits to the most popular cultural, social, and transport-related map items (where the entrances and exits are clearly demarcated for traffic going in one direction, such as at the Moscow Kremlin).

3.3.2.5. Level (A) and Level (B)

Enter values for the road level in the Level A and Level B fields:

Available values for levels:
  • 0 (ground level) — if sections of road that intersect are both on ground level. For example, at intersections or railway crossings.
  • 1, 2, 3 — above ground level. For example, if one road at an intersection passes over another on a bridge or as part of an interchange and the second road or railway is at ground level.
  • -1, -2, -3 — below ground level. For example, if one road at an intersection passes through a tunnel and the second road is at ground level.

Values “Level And” and “Level B” must be filled in for each road section.

If the intersecting roads intersect on the same level, at the intersection point, the road elements must have the same level values. If roads intersect in the plan but are located at different heights, these road elements must have different levels at the intersection (in the plan).

A road consisting of several road sections should be logically connected to the correctly spaced values of “Level A” and “Level B” for all road sections that belong to it (see Leveling examples).

The majority of road sections have a zero value for “Level A” and “Level B”.

3.3.2.5.1

You can only change the values of road levels (including pedestrian paths) if they pass through tunnels or over bridges. In exceptional cases, the value may also change for roads in underground parking structures (see point 3.3.1.1.6.1).

If the road follows the local terrain and thus, for example, rises along with a slope or falls along with a valley, then this does not affect the value of the road level.

3.3.2.5.2

Road sections can not have values for Level A and Level B that differ by more than one. If there is a difference of 2 or more, there is an error in the allocation of the road element and it must be divided into two (or more) sections.

3.3.2.5.3

Descents and ascents into and out of above/below ground pedestrian crosswalks are marked using levels (similarly to how different types of road sections are marked).

3.3.2.5.4

Sections of road that have the “Bridge” attribute can not have values for the beginning and ending points of less than “+1”, even if there is no visible rise in the road level (for example, if the bridge passes over a small river):

3.3.2.5.5

The sections of road that approach a bridge and have the values [0—1] or [1—0] for levels A and B should not be longer than the length of the bridge itself.

If a section of road that is the same length as the bridge itself doesn't include a single intersection with other roads, then you must create an additional point on the road in order to lower its level.

For example, in the drawing on the left, the approaching road section 0→1 is substantially longer than the bridge itself (1→1). Therefore, you should create an additional point on this level and split the section (into sections 0→0 and 0→1) so that the length of the approaching road (0→1) is the same as that of the bridge (1→1) in the drawing on the right:

3.3.2.5.6. Examples of setting levels

The drawings below are simple examples of how to set levels:

а) At intersections of a vehicle bridge passing over a river:

b) At intersections of a vehicle bridge passing over another motorway:

с) At intersections of motorways passing through a tunnel with another motorway:

d) See the Examples of setting road levels at interchanges section for more information.

Attention.

It is necessary to strictly observe the connectivity of the routing graph (see para. Connectivity): attribute value “Level And” and “Level B” they should be changed not only for sections of roads in a tunnel or on a bridge, but also for sections adjacent to them. Otherwise the road graph will be disconnected.

For logical breaks in the road graph (as a result of incorrectly set levels), it is not possible to construct a route that passes through the section of the gap.

3.3.2.6. Type of structure

The “Type of structure” attribute doesn't characterize the road structure itself (that's what the Road infrastructure item category is for), but rather that section of road (including pedestrian roads) that run through that structure (i.e. the bridge, tunnel, etc.).:

The roads passing over bridges on the national map include the roads that are located on bridges (underpasses, overpasses) across rivers, roads, ravines, or other physical obstacles. For information on bridge boundaries, see point 3.8.1.1.3.

When you select the “tunnel” type, you must pay attention to the tunnel features that lets you figure out if the situation you are mapping is a “bridge over a road or a tunnel under a road”:

  1. Roadbed:

    • or routed through a natural or artificial elevation (rock formations or road embankment),
    • Or (in developed areas and/or in interchanges) the road level continuously lowers in relation to the ground level until it reaches the entrance portal to a tunnel.
  2. The presence of entrance or exit portals: these are considered to be the boundaries between the tunnel and the section of road with the “tunnel” attribute.

When entering attribute values:

3.3.2.6.1

Draw the part of road that runs through the structure as a separate section of road (regardless of whether the road is drawn using one or two lines).

Enter the beginning and ending points for these road sections at the points of entry and exit to the road structure: the points where the bridge connects to the ground (don't include the embankment part of the bridge) and the portals to the tunnel.

3.3.2.6.2

Underground and aboveground pedestrian crosswalks are marked with attribute values.

3.3.2.6.3

You “should not mark” a value for the “Bridge” and Tunnel attributes (i.e. “there aren't any” attribute values) for the following:

  • Road structures that consist of pipes and dirt embankments that water flows through beneath the road.

  • Parts of the road that run under arches in residential buildings.

3.3.2.6.4

Use the Staircase attribute in the situations described below.

3.3.2.6.4.1

Streets-stairs. For example, part of “Lanzheronovsky Descent” in Odessa:

In this case, enter Road of minimal significance for the “class”. In general, despite the drop in height, levels A and B of the road section will stay at zero in these situations:

You can link address points to this type of road.

Note.

If a stairway is equipped with a ramp, bicyclists can access that road section.

3.3.2.6.4.2

Pedestrian stairs that lead to bridges (where the pedestrian ascent differs from the one for cars), stairs that go along the slopes (in a Gill or on a hill), escalators, descents and ascents of underground and above-ground passages. (such as the staircase leading to Patriarshy Bridge in Moscow):

In this case, enter Pedestrian and bike paths for the “road class”, and Pedestrian crosswalk for “Design features of road section”. In these cases, Level A and B of the road section (i.e. the staircase) usually have zero values:

3.3.2.6.4.3

Stairs for underground and above-ground crossings.

3.3.2.6.5

The "Ford" value is assigned to an attribute on road elements that intersect a small area in a river or stream (which can be reached on foot or by car). Enter the same class for that road section as the adjacent road sections, but disable the accessibility attribute for all types of vehicles:

3.3.2.7. Design feature

Select an attribute value from the drop-down list.

Available attribute values:

3.3.2.7.1. Absent

For road sections that don't have any of the design features listed below (i.e. they consist of one roadway, etc.) Default value.

3.3.2.7.2. Two carriageways
For road sections, which are drawn in two arcs in accordance with the rules, see Section3.3.1.2. Rules for drawing roads in one/two arcs (one or two lines).
3.3.2.7.3. Circular motion

For sections of road that form a circle (ring), which may be confirmed by a “Roundabout” road sign:

There is a tool for drawing circular road sections.

3.3.2.7.4. Congress

For exits and sections that connect disparate roads (including side exits and forks that help disperse traffic jams as the road approaches an intersection on one level):







3.3.2.7.5. Understudy

For sections of frontage roads: roads that have “Frontage” as their official status and name, or roads whose official status is “frontage” but do not have an official name. These are usually roads longer than a few blocks, parallel to the main thoroughfare, and intended to reduce traffic on it.:



Frontage roads can't have a higher class than the main road:

  • Assign class 6 to frontage roads that are at least three-lanes wide and run parallel to highways of class 1-4, as well as to frontage roads that are 1-2 lanes wide and connect roads of class 1-6 to roads of class 6.

  • Assign class 7 to frontage roads that are 1-2 lanes wide and run parallel to roads of class 1-7.

3.3.2.7.6. Turn

Only enter this attribute for sections of road if one of the following road signs is present:

  • ─ U-turn allowed or
  • ─ U-turn area

Furthermore, that section of road should not be a continuation of a road of class 1-7.

3.3.2.7.7. Pedestrian crossing

Sections of road that are intended solely as pedestrian road or railway crossings: underground, ground-level, and aboveground crossings (including descents and ascents).

These areas are assigned a class value of10. Pedestrian paths.

When mapping underground and aboveground crossings, keep in mind that they are not only drawn as road sections, but also as Road infrastructure items.

3.3.2.8. Speed limit

Enter the speed limit attribute for that section (in km/h or m/hr).

Note.

If speed is measured in miles per hour in the country you are mapping, then enter that attribute value in miles per hour (not kilometers per hour).

You can enter typical speed limits by clicking on the appropriate value below the field (5, ..., 90). If the value you are looking for is not there, you can enter it using your keyboard.

Do not enter a speed limit for field roads (class 9) or pedestrian and biking paths (class 10).

If the speed limit is only in effect during nights, don't enter it.

Attention.

The speed limit should be a multiple of 5. If you try to enter an invalid speed limit, you will get an error warning. To save the road section, you must fix the error:

When you create a new section of road, the attribute value will be entered automatically. If a different speed limit is in effect on that road section, then you should correct the default value.

The default attribute values are listed in the table (NP — settlement, class — attribute 3.3.2.1. Class).

Note.

If a road section partially crosses the border of a locality (but also exits the border of that territory), then assign that section the lesser of the speed limits in effect on the territory it occupies.

3.3.2.8.1

You can enter this attribute for any section of road (other than pedestrian and bike paths) on which a speed limit is in effect (whether it applies to that locality or is specific to that highway) or corresponding traffic signs are present.

Note.

The locations of road signs for the Beginning and Ending of a locality (and the points where the speed limit changes) often do not coincide with the administrative borders of a localities.

3.3.2.8.2

In cases where signs (construction, detour, etc.) indicate that the speed limit has been temporarily lowered, enter the attribute value that corresponds to the permanent signs or traffic laws.

3.3.2.8.3

If signs indicate that the speed limit on the same road section differs by time of day, enter the lesser of the two values for the attribute.

3.3.2.8.4

If the speed limit for a given road section differs by traffic direction on a one-line road, enter the lesser of the two values for the attribute.

3.3.2.9. Hard surface

Flip the “Paved” switch on if a road section is paved using asphalt, concrete or paving stones (such as on Barrikadnaya St. in Moscow).

Wooden covering, gravel, or crushed stone coating are not considered types of pavement.

For paved roads, set the value to “Yes” (check the box): For all other types of road, set the value to “No” (don't check the box):

3.3.2.10. Public transport lane

The “Oncoming lane for public transport” attribute indicates that there is a traffic lane specifically allocated for public transport going in the opposite direction (on one-way streets).

Set the value to “Yes” (check the box) for road sections that are parts of these type of roads. For all other road sections, you can set the value to “No” (don't check the box):

Value of the “Yes” sign may be assigned only for one-way road sections (See Cl. 3.3.2.4. Direction of traffic) without lane markers.

3.3.2.11. Under construction

The “Under construction” switch lets you show that a road section is under construction.

For paved roads, set the value to “Yes” (check the box). For all other road sections, you can set the value to “No” (don't check the box):

Setting the value “Yes” this attribute should also be set to “Unavailable” for all modes of transport (see attribute description 3.3.2.3. Accessible to).

During road construction and repair, the "under construction" sign is set if the traffic is blocked for a certain period of time. more than three months. Please indicate information about temporary closures in your map item report.

You can draw a road that is “under construction” from the moment it starts being built (i.e. from the moment the foundation is laid).

If a planned street already has addresses even though there are no buildings on it or sections that are under construction, you can draw the planned location of the road sections that are “under construction”.

When drawing roads under construction, follow the rules for connecting the road network. When you mark roads of class 6 and higher as “under construction”, you must raise the class of the road being used as a detour so that no breaks in the network of high-class roads occur.

Roads under construction display using dotted lines on the map:

All roads under construction (except for class 10 roads) are class 7. Class 10 roads under construction (pedestrian) will still be class 10 (see also point 3.3.2.1.7).

The rules for naming roads that are under construction are similar to the naming rules for all roads (see Section3.3.3.1. Rules for the generation of road names).

3.3.2.12. Paid (a sign of paid travel)

The “Toll” attribute marks sections of road that you must pay to use.

Attention.

For highways that are partly or completely tollways, you should create an additional road item of the named highway type. All toll sections of a highway are included in one item, even if there are breaks between the toll sections of a highway (i.e. freeway sections). Enter names using the format М-4 (paid) — number + indication (in parentheses) “toll”.

For sections of toll roads, set the value to “Yes” (check the box). For all other road sections, you can set the value to “No” (don't check the box).

“Enter” the Yes value for all sections of road where tolls are collected according to official documentation (for example, the sections of the M-3 road between km 124 and 173), as well as sections of road that only exit onto toll roads sections.

You “do not need” to enter the Yes value:

  • For u-turns on paid sections or roads of class 8

  • For sections of road that function as exits to paid parking lots (such as at airports)

3.3.2.13. Poor state

The “Poor condition” switch lets you show that a road section is in unsatisfactory condition.

For paved roads, set the value to “Yes” (check the box). For all other road sections, you can set the value to “No” (don't check the box):

This attribute is only set for roads in classes 1-9.

Only enter this value in accordance with these rules:

  1. If the “No” value is set for a road section to indicate that it's not paved, then only set the “Yes” value for the “Poor condition” option in cases where it's not possible to drive through that section in a passenger car in dry weather.

  2. If the “Yes” value is set for a road section to indicate that it's paved, then only set the “Yes” value for the “Poor condition” option if there are potholes that you can't drive around. If a road is made of concrete slabs, then set this value if large openings have formed between the blocks or if the blocks themselves have been destroyed, potholes have formed, and the reinforcement bars are exposed.

You should only change this attribute value if the section of road that the condition applies to extends for at least one city block or 200 meters.

If the road section extends for less than that distance, then don't change the attribute value.

Don't create additional road sections within localities in order to assign attributes to them (i.e. don't break up road sections).

Examples:

  1. Road in poor condition made of cement slabs:

  2. Road in poor condition made of cement slabs:

  3. Paved road in poor condition:

  4. Paved road in poor condition:

  5. Unpaved road in poor condition:

  6. Unpaved road in poor condition:
