That is the most confusing and pointless example of a road designer on too much caffeine I've ever seen.
There used to be a similar one on the A13 at Benfleet. Thankfully they have since built a flyover there.
Folk up here struggle with simple mini-roundabouts....."Do you give way to the left or the right?" type of thing. God knows what would happen if something like that was introduced :)
That very poor attempt at traffic management doesn't even look good on paper in my opinion.
Looks like a large number of accidents waiting to happen so avoid if possible.
Been there for 40 years apparently :blink:
I just get a mobile wiki page on the programme, but I'm not going to fall out over it ;)
That's pretty terrible, but I think Elephant & Castle roundabout here in London, ranks as one of the worst in the country, and possibly the world. Thankfully consultation is out to redesign the whole thing or at least make it easier to navigate.
In the area that we live most of the large roundabouts, especially those with underpasses have been replaced by traffic lights.
Most of the other large roundabouts have now been updated to have traffic signals incorporated.
Traffic progress is slower but I believe that there has been a significant reduction in the number of accidents.
Obviously people still run red lights and forcibly change lanes resulting in collisions but as mentioned the numbers have reduced considerably.
Stay safe out there.
That is some seriously crazy shizzle!
