The problem seems to be the space available to make ramps that allow access in all directions. I did Bedford Bypass a couple of times, and there's not so much room to build ramps because the NS-102/NS-101 interchange is close, the actual ramps of this interchange already have sharp curves, and the area is much mountainous. It's sure that on a map, it looks more logic to connect the NS-107 extension with the Bedford Bypass, but it won't be physically possible, IMHO. 

AsphaltPlanet:
It does seem like somewhat of a missed opportunity to connect 107 directly to Highway 101 at the Bedford By-pass interchange.  The Bedford By-pass interchange at Highway 102 isn't a great in my opinion.  But, it would probably cost a lot do something with that interchange.

A new segment of NS101 has opened in Digby County, between Conway and Marshalltown:

(Should I assume the bypassed segment will become Trunk 1?)

Sorry for the very very late reply, but someone on Skyscraperpage forum posted this old study about NS-102 between NS-101 and NS-107 extension.

Talk about a missed opportunity.

Stephane Dumas:
Time to bump this thread, there'll be a new exit on NS-101 desserving Cambridge and Waterville from what I saw on Skyscraperpage forums.
