I don't see the same problem, there are physically separated lanes for the entrances and exits. Similar to those found in Germany:



In my opinion, the initial viaduct of the bypass, with a sharp curve, is several times more problematic than the pointed intersection.

Look closely: the ramp on the left bottom requires crossing, at ~ 70 degrees, the exit ramp for the local lanes. It is an horribly unacceptable design that defeats the purpose of a cloverleaf altogether.

Take a closer look here on Google Maps, on the NE => SW ramp - there is even a STOP sign at its end, before drivers can merge onto the other highway . Huge potential for lateral high-speed collisions. They wanted to save money for two additional short viaducts that would connect the access lanes to the local lanes further east. And the result is this horrible deadly design.

I doubt there is anything remotely like that in operation in Germany.

I didn't see that detail, and yes, it looks very dangerous. It's interesting to see that, on the other direction, there isn't such a terrible design concept.

They lacked space to build proper merger lanes, and decided to go cheap instead.

My guess: the local lanes east of the cloverleaf weren't originally planned. Then, for some stupid reason, they decided to build them, but they didn't bother to redesign the whole interchange, which might have already been under construction, and just patched it like that.
