French highways[edit]

Pour les autoroutes françaises, doit on utiliser cette propriété pour indiquer le réseau concessionnaire ? ex: w:fr:AREA, w:fr:Autoroutes Paris-Rhin-Rhône ou w:fr:Société des autoroutes du Nord et de l'Est de la France ? Ske (talk) 16:14, 10 February 2013 (UTC)


I am not clear about the exact meaning of this property. The value is often a "list of" page, which does not make much sense. And what exactly is a highway system ? I know that the phrase, is used "Interstate Highway System", but is there any technical definition, or any benefit over using part of ? --Zolo (talk) 21:46, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

I agree, this property is not well-defined. And in many cases not used correctly (value of a 'list' article which is not desirable). And why not use the generic "part of" property in case a road is part of a specific 'system'. 13:23, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
