Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Take a look at this. It's a turn zone for trucks, and not a normal exit. The tertiary road still provides direct access to E65, but if a truck is driving the wrong way, they can handle it at this junction. highway=service does not seem the best way to tag it, and for a minute I considered a _link tag, but since it's not a normal junction that seems wrong.

If I've understood correctly then highway=service seems reasonable. I'd also consider adding other tags though. Is it only for trucks? If so then I'd access=no and hgv=yes. Is it only for them to use as you describe, in which case do they need oneway tags adding? And maybe turn restriction relations to make clear that they should only be used if going the wrong way (warning if you do - at some point validators may spot these strange turn restrictions so add a note tag too).

That sounds wise. I'll look into the roads again, but I might have to go out there if there is no Bing coverage. Thanks for the answer!
