[Tagging] tagging of one-way cycle lanes

we have some crossings with 4 lanes where the driving direction is
south/north/south/north (we drive on the right hand side normally, so
it should have been south/south/north/north). They did this so left
turning traffic is not blocking the left turning traffic from the
other side. This can not be modelled with the current lane tagging.

Martin, in case of the absence of lane markings, does one have to use
flashing lights to change "virtual" lanes ?
