Reduced congestion and increased safety

A staggered crossroads, prone to congestion, was dismantled and replaced with a roundabout.

After 19 casualties in five years at the junction, increased safety was a high priority.

Supporting businesses

A filling station, car dealership, hotel and McDonalds, all generate a considerable throughput of traffic and each had restricted access/ egress which created congestion.

The new roundabout provides a significant improvement to the traffic flow. An additional stub was added for access to adjacent land for future development

Minimised disruption

PBS took great care to allow businesses and traffic to function as close to normal as possible. Mains and telecoms to the nearby businesses had to be diverted, and two-way traffic flow was maintained throughout the day.
