From 403 and Main Google actually recommends the Linc and RHVP as the quickest route to the RHVP intersection:

19 minutes and 22.9 km compared with 21 minutes and 10.7 km along Main St.

What is the 23 km detour?

The whole point of a ring road is to save time by travelling around a city core. Going around a city is quite obviously further (about 60% further if it's a circle).
