3.8.6. Railway crossings

The Railway crossings category is used to display railway crossings on the map provided they:

  • Intersect with the road network.
  • Are functioning (not blocked or abandoned).
  • Are controlled (with a boom gate, traffic light, or level crossing keeper).
  • Are uncontrolled but cross a road of Class 6 or higher and don't belong to an industrial railway line that dead-ends after the crossing.

When drawing railway crossings, use the following generalization rule: if the road is crossed by a multi-track railway line with sections that intersect the sections of the road network, the map shows one Railway crossing road condition. Set the road condition at the intersection of the car network with the central railway line of the "railway" type:

If separate branches of the road network are located between the intersections of the tracks with the road, each intersection is marked with a separate “Railway crossing” traffic condition: Railway crossings: drawing rules

Railway crossings are drawn at the points of the road network.

To create an item at the point of the road network, cut the road section in the spot where the speed bump is physically located. If an intersection already exists at this spot, you don't need to create an additional intersection:

As you're creating an item using the Create → Railway crossing option in the main menu of the Yandex Map Editor interface, a road intersection is created automatically when you select a point on the map:

The set of road sections covered by the railway crossings can be edited if needed:
