Make turn in NSW

Hello fellows,

I have one serious doubt...
I have looked in NSW safet rules, which are published here:
http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roads/safety- … kings.html

and there are few examples of allowed turnings, such as:

However, I have found this situation:

So, my quesiton is: Is it allowed to make turn here, or not?

Thank you in advance,
Nemanja

Re: Make turn in NSW

According to your link: No. A double line must not be crossed either by turning right into the driveway or leaving the driveway to the right.
Only an unbroken (continuous) single line may be crossed in this particular situation (entering / leaving road).

Thanks for replay!

Hmm, can you (or someone else) confirm that you are absolutely sure about that?
My friend just sent me an email with the document, which on the bottom of 8th page it is said, I quote:
In NSW drivers are also permitted to cross two continuous
lines to enter or leave the road by the shortest route.

The document is taken from this url:

Thank you for your time,
Nemanja

Re: Make turn in NSW

As a driver in NSW, my understanding is it's fine to cross double white lines in cases like this.

But even if it wasn't, I'd argue it's best to map this though the overtaking tag https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:overtaking and not by applying turn restrictions everywhere.

Thanks for the reply!
Just to confirm. Should we map that though the overtaking tag, or maybe changing:lanes?
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Pro … res/change
Road markings map style for JOSM fully supports this feature.

Thanks,
Nemanja
