It seems to me to be totally unnecessary as Junction 46 a mile further north east provides full access to and from the D119 and the D943 at a roundabout interchange, and all the local streets, etc., on the other side of the river are served by the McDonald's exit at Junction 44 (a full diamond interchange) a mile southwest of this sliproad !
I did note, tho', that the start of this superfluous sliproad has a large convenient (unsigned!) parking space and there's also no French chopsticks anywhere along it until you're on the A16 itself!
Although, if the D119 *was* the main route to the port at one point, I do wonder how that weird dogleg over the river a little further north coped with all the traffic!

Going back to 2008 GSV at the roundabout you can make out old lane markings for traffic entering the roundabout

It was the link from the ferry/hoverport to the southbound A16 before the N216/A216 was built. The D219 was actually dualled for part of its length until the N216/A216 was completed.
Big and complex.
