It would also not allow for conditions where the solid line only affects
traffic in one direction. 

Also would imply a dual carriageway and therefore imply a higher speed
limit where the National Speed Limit tag has been used.

Routers would still have the ascendancy to route U-turns around the end
of the division.

Really not a solution, the only solution is to add the necessary turn
