The smallest roundabout in Melbourne?

roundabout

This could be the smallest roundabout in Melbourne. The extruded circular centre-piece is only about 1m in diameter, yet there are two generous traffic lanes which pass around it. I think the unusual configuration is influenced by the requirement for buses to easily move around this area. This picture was taken in Deer Park.
