Streets vs. Roads in Austria[edit]

Whats the correct Cat. Category:Roads in Austria or. Category:Streets in Austria At the end ist should be only one Category i think. --Naoag (talk) 16:09, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

"Streets" seems to work better for cities/villages. You might want to rename the subcategories for the states too and redirect the other version. -- User:Docu at 03:52, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
The word "road" can be translated as Außerortsstraße to German or as Freilandstraße to Austrian German. Many languages have different term for a street and a road. --ŠJů (talk) 06:38, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
Most of countries have separate categories of streets and of roads. See Category:Streets by country and Category:Roads by country. It's not reasonable to make a exception in respect of Austria. --ŠJů (talk) 07:06, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
Don't merge. See en:street vs. en:road: Whereas a street is a public thoroughfare in a built environment, meant to facilitate public interaction, a road's main purpose is transportation. --wg (talk) 21:54, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
