Do roundabouts accommodate buses/trucks?

Roundabouts are designed so that buses may go through them while staying in their own lane. Larger roundabouts allow large semitrailers to go through while staying in their lane as well. However, most roundabouts have a raised concrete apron around the inside circle to allow trucks to ride over them. This allows trucks to go through the roundabout while allowing the roundabout to stay small in size.
