The intersection was fine before the addition of the highway links. The new links add nothing to the map other than clutter.
The links do improve turn-by-turn instructions, in the case of
following a large vehicle and not being sure where to leave the main
lane of traffic to make a left turn. But it's also possible that
adding turn lanes and/or change:lanes could work (but I'm not familiar
with change:lanes enough to know for sure).
I think some areas are more likely to add a physical divider based
on history of traffic flow and available funds.
