[Talk-us] Should this be a dual carriageway?

From Bing I am wondering it is isn't a "super two" (limited access, two way road) which I think we've been tagging as highway=trunk.

If there is actually a barrier in the middle that is not visible in Bing, then it should split into two separate one lane ways. Not sure I'd hang a motorway tag on it though as that requires a minimum of two lanes in each direction. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dmotorway
