This could be easily helped by adding the new lane on the left rather than the right, though I'm sure the idiots will still just move left once they've realised they can.

No more three laning should be done unless the roads are overcapacity. Albertans have proved they are too stupid to use three lanes effectively and don't deserve them - spend the money on more useful improvements like closing grade intersections.
Odd, when I've been on that section of highway I have seen semi's move over to the right pretty much just after that new third lane starts and other traffic moving over as well from the left lane to the center lane. To me it seems to have been money well spent.
