you could map the kerbs and create a multipolygon pedestrian area or grass
areas etc, for the island with the kerbs as outers. There is also
barrier=guard_rail and barrier=fence for potential barriers. The road will
be split into a dual carriageway and both are connected with the crossing
(if any). Crossings can be mapped as footways with footway=crossing. It is
just so tedious for something as interesting as a traffic island, that many
people do not care ;-)

You do not have to map the area, but you can if you like.
