The slip roads are straight ahead, whilst the through route curves to the right. The tag is need to tell the router that straight ahead is not stay on the same road.
Hope that explains it.

to make a left turn"

Excuse my ignorance, but if your destination is Haslingden, why can't 
the routing software send you left at that junction? What makes it 
different to any other turning?
