In my experimental maps of Australia, I've used a transparent orange
circle on the intersection.  Look along e.g. Stirling Highway in the
middle of this map:

What are people doing for traffic lights on junctions of dual
carriageways?  I've been placing a node in the middle of the
intersection, not sitting on any of ways involved, which renders nicely
but lacks semantic information for route planners.
