oneway=no

lanes=1

I would consider that wrong.

 

lanes=1

oneway=no 

 

is a road that is so narrow that opposing traffic can only pass by slowing down and making use of shoulder/verge to pass each other. Or maybe even has the need to look for a https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway=passing_place to be able to pass each other (like the example image shown on that page).

 

What your image above shows is pretty clearly a lanes=2, which you can see very well by just following the street a few meters:

as you can see, there are clear road markings establishing two lanes.

 

 

Here is an example of the roads I mean that should be tagged with

 

lanes=2

divider=no

(oneway=no is normally implicit, so no need to tag it when there is no reason to wrongly assume a road should be oneway)

You can see that the roads generally have no marked lanes, but at the T-intersection there are markings that make it clear the road is intended to be a two lane road.

 

Cheers,
