The Missing Magic Roundabout Map

Mapbox's Roundabouts Worldwide is an important map dedicated to the beautiful motor vehicular navigational aide of the circular intersection. These universally loved junctions, which are designed to facilitate road traffic flow in a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction around a central island, certainly deserve their very own map.

However Swindon's famous Magic Roundabout, which consists of five mini-roundabouts arranged around a larger sixth central roundabout, is missing from the map. Mapbox obviously made a mistake in using OpenStreetMap data to map every road roundabout in the world. I'm afraid you can't call yourself a serious Roundabouts Worldwide map with such a glaring omission.

Nice try. Must do better.
