Description

It takes twice as long to draw a dual carriageway road as it does to draw a single carriageway. There are a lot of dual carriageways in the world.

It would be very nice to have a way of making a dual carriageway by drawing a single line and then "cloning" it to create an identical second carriageway.

The algorithm to do this would be quite interesting!

This would only save a bit of time for dual carriageways which are just two identical roads side by side, but as far as I can tell, it's rarely that trivial - a lot of the time the carriageways do different things, are at different elevations, etc. etc.

This would come after we change the selection model to allow the selection of multiple segments, I think. If we implement cut/copy/paste and move for selections, then it would be trivial.
