Road reference number format

I found several reference tags in Turkish roads contradicting each other. Unfortunately the road signs are also not consistent. For example I have seen "D-100", "D_100", "D 100" and "D100" used for the same road.
At least for motorways (otoban) I have seen consistent use of "O-1" etc.
I couldn't find a tagging guideline on the https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Turkey page.

What's the recommended tagging practice for road reference numbers in Turkey?

Re: Road reference number format

That differs even on street signs wink Have a look at D.300 photos 1 and 5 at https://hiveminer.com/Tags/d300%2Ctürkiye/Timeline for example...
The Turkish wikipedia uses a dot as in https://tr.wikipedia.org/wiki/D_300

Re: Road reference number format

Has there even been achieved some consensus within the active Turkish OSM mapping community, which format would be preferred in OSM?

Re: Road reference number format

Hi Claudius, we've met at Heidelberg.

Unfortunately there is not a consensus within the community, but when I checked the international convention, the naming seems to be E5, D100 etc.

It is also common to use dash and state as E-5 or D-100 as well. My logic tells me the former, without dash.
