Holy Horror! Each entrance has its own roundabout?

I think this one is in Swindon, but I'm not sure. There is another one in Hemel Hempstead which has six mini roundabouts scattered around a big central roundabout :)

You just treat each mini roundabout as a normal roundabout, with the normal priorities, and it is "easy" ... ish :)

Peace

But why the turn lanes in the middle? There's another 'inside' roundabout as well? and there's no stop lights!

All the little roundabouts have lanes marked, so all you need to do is (a) know where you want to go, (b) work out which lane you need to be in (c) try and get into the correct lane (d) work out what to do when you go through the roundabout in the wrong lane and head off in the wrong direction. Simple!

That roundabout needs it's own bypass! And why haven't they put a rest area in the middle for all the lost souls who can't find their way off it?

How about a pub with a car-park? That would make it even more "magical."

Strangely enough Dave, I know of a roundabout with a pub in the middle of it - I think it's on the A31 near Fareham.
