This is something I brought up a while ago. Consider the following


A       B       C
D      E|       F
ABC is oneway in direction ABC
FED is oneway in direction FED
BE is twoway but is marked with direction BE
U turns are not allowed for FEBC nor are they allowed for ABED but all other turn are allowed

In this situation the "via way" is BE and you create a no_u_turn trstriction from FE, to BC, via BE. Up until now mkgmap would ignore this restriction as it couldn't handle it.

There are loads of these near me and I suspect in many other places as well
