Roundabout of Hell

By Rads 19 February 2011 22

What the bleeding heck is with Canberra motorists queuing across the Antill St/Phillip Ave roundabout in the mornings? Don’t they understand that their failure to grasp the principles of roundabout mechanics means that they block traffic in THREE DIRECTIONS in their desperation to get to work?

Treat roundabouts like a traffic-light governed intersection and only drive when you can make your way across the entire intersection.

And no, I won’t be waving thanks when they deign to leave me a tiny gap to squeeze through. Because they shouldn’t be there in the first place.

What’s Your opinion?

For the last few weeks Antill St. has been closed near the BP Service Station on the Highway so people who would normally access Antill from the BP end are now cutting through Watson. I believe that road will be open again by the end of this week. Not sure if that will help things because there does seem to be a lot more cars in the Watson / Dickson area than there used to be. More houses I guess…damn population growth.

Nope. Won’t be open until August at least according to Roundabout for the corner of Antill and Aspinall.

And yes, I too wish people would stop having babies that grow up to put more houses in suburbs and more cars on roads… and then make babies…

August !?…boo-urns.
