TfL CID - proposed attribute conversion to OSM

TfL Field Guide

Please give feedback on talk-gb and/or submit a pull request to the properties file.

Advanced Stop Line fields

Name: Advanced Stop Line
Geometry type: LineString
Description: Advance stop lines (ASL) located at traffic signals to provide an area for cyclists to wait for the traffic signals to change ahead of general traffic. The ASL reservoir is the area between the solid stop line, level with the signals, and the ASL for general traffic. The reservoir may have a coloured surface and have a cycle symbol in the centre.

Feeder Lane - asl_fdr

Fieldname: asl_fdr
Title: Feeder Lane
Description: True = Feeder lane present
False = No feeder lane present (may be gate)
Data type: ENUM('TRUE','FALSE')
Example ID: RWG065830
Clarifications: Is drawn in a way which makes entirely clear which road this on, to the left of it
Convert geometry: way->node, retain way
OSM tag(s): node: cycleway=asl, TRUE: way: cycleway=lane
OSM comment: OSM treats ASLs as a node, but the CID has them as a line. No tag for feeder lane exists yet, other than putting the lane on the adjacent highway
Action note: Add node for ASL itself, and then when TRUE add cycleway=lane to way

This feature may include pedestrian-only crossings but only where they provide a link intended for cyclists to use between signed cycle routes (e.g. shared footways on both sides of the road or crossings over multi-lane, major or busy roads).

Cycle Lane/Track fields

Name: Cycle Lane/Track
Geometry type: LineString
Description: Formally designated road space for cyclists, usually identified with a combination of signs and line markings, and very often marked with the cycle symbol. Cycle lanes are parts of the road marked for use by cyclists. A bus lane that cyclists may use is regarded as a type of cycle lane. Cycle tracks are always off-carriageway, either next to it (associated with the footway) or completely away from the highway (e.g. canal towpaths, routes through parks). The ways that they are signed are more variable than cycle lanes.

Signal fields

Name: Signal
Geometry type: Point
Description: Traffic signals at which there are specific benefits for cyclists, which includes signals that have been designed or reprogrammed so that the phasing gives advantage to cyclists and improves their safety moving through the junction.

Early Release - sig_early

Fieldname: sig_early
Title: Early Release
Description: True = Early release for cyclists
False = No early release for cyclists
Data type: ENUM('TRUE','FALSE')
Example ID: RWG070836
Clarifications: -
Convert geometry: -
OSM tag(s): TRUE: traffic_signals:bicycle_early_release=yes
OSM comment: Currently no support for this but may be useful in improving cycle safety in routing. Suggested new tag.

Cycle/Bus Gate - sig_gate

Fieldname: sig_gate
Title: Cycle/Bus Gate
Description: True = Cycle/bus gate allowing cycles to get ahead of general traffic
False = Not a cycle/bus gate
Data type: ENUM('TRUE','FALSE')
Example ID: RWG064212
Clarifications: Essentially this is a physically-separate section of cycleway/busway
Convert geometry: node->way
OSM tag(s): TRUE: highway=cycleway, cycleway=track/share_busway
OSM comment: Needs to be drawn on as additional cycleway as is physically separate. Whether to use track/share_busway needs observation of photos.

Cycle Signal Head - sig_head

Fieldname: sig_head
Title: Cycle Signal Head
Description: True = Cycle symbol on signal (as a light or set of lights with symbols)
False = No cycle symbol on signal
Data type: ENUM('TRUE','FALSE')
Example ID: RWG150919
Clarifications: This is about physical presence of a cycle symbol, but only sometimes about head-height signals per se - can just be a filter on a general traffic light set
Convert geometry: -
OSM tag(s): -
OSM comment: Not useful - essentially duplicates other provision e.g. signal on separate cycle track, and OSM is not really concerned with signal phasing issues.

Separate Stage for Cyclists - sig_separa

Fieldname: sig_separa
Title: Separate Stage for Cyclists
Description: True = Separate stage for cyclists
False = No separate stage for cyclists
Data type: ENUM('TRUE','FALSE')
Example ID: RWG012274
Clarifications: This is about a separate stage in timing terms but not early release
Convert geometry: -

OSM comment: Not useful - essentially duplicates other provision e.g. signal on separate cycle track, and OSM is not really concerned with signal phasing issues.

Two Stage Turn - sig_twostg

Fieldname: sig_twostg
Title: Two Stage Turn
Description: True = Two stage right turn (where signed)
False = No two stage right turn (where signed)
Data type: ENUM('TRUE','FALSE')
Example ID: RWG070837
Clarifications: This is actually a signage addition within the lights, rather than signals per se, e.g. "No right turn -- Except in two stages"
Convert geometry: node->way
OSM tag(s): TRUE: highway=cycleway, bicycle:oneway=yes added as short spur after lights. Could be expressed as relation also, with except=bicycle
OSM comment: Also useful for general mapping of turn restrictions, e.g. RWG070837 and nearby locations.
Action note: Needs community discussion as is complex case.

Traffic Calming fields

Name: Traffic Calming
Geometry type: Point
Description: Traffic calming measures that are intended to reduce the speed of motor vehicles. It generally comprises vertical and horizontal deflections. Traffic calming assets were recorded for on-carriageway features. For example, speed humps on fully segregated cycle lanes should not be captured.

OSM tag(s): TRUE: sidewalk=yes, continuous=yes
OSM comment: OSM currently has no notion of representing a continuous sidewalk. Could be represented on the Node as sidewalk=yes,continuous=yes, or on the Way where the pavement is separately represented. Continuous would be a new tag. If community is divided, represe
