Thank you for you help Sandro,
As I understand something like this in theory:
SELECT ST_Node(ST_Collect(the_geom)) FROM roads;
Then I generate series from the result and using ST_Contains find to
what initial "road" geometry the segment belongs and get it's gid or
Also you know (or maybe someone else knows) is it possible to
accomplish this in PostGIS 1.5 ?
