However, for some reason AB trans have decided to put a roundabout on the Highway 43X bypass, which I really don't get. I love roundabouts in the right situation, but we really should have the intention of making Highway 43 a proper freeway (and I have seen statements from AB trans agreeing with that). But putting in a roundabout implies that they won't upgrade that intersection for many years - it's maddening.

The southern interchange looks poor too (offramp from left lane), and they've put in a few suicide left turns too for good measure. Why can't we have nice things?
