It is not wide enough to be a conventional twoway road so can it be tagged twoway? That would give the impression that cars can progress along it in opposite directions at the same time....that would be incorrect. But neither direction has the right of way and it is up to driver discretion and politeness as to who will reverse back to the passing bay. So oneway=no but twoway is not necessary yes.
