Southsiders may be aware that TAMS have been doing things to the Woden (Yamba/Yarra Glen/Melrose) roundabout lately. Considering that those things include fundamentally changing which lanes you need to be in to make it in and out of the roundabout, am I asking too much for a little signage warning us of these changes?
Earlier in the week, the Melrose exit went from two lanes to one, and tonight I discover that we now have to get over into that “no longer an exit” lane when we enter the roundabout at Yarra Glen because it now becomes the “correct” lane halfway round and the entry for the “correct” lane doesn’t even get you into the roundabout any more! Particularly with evening peak hour being in the dark these days, I’ve seen several drivers having to brake or make sudden lane changes when they see the new markings on the road.
I can see how, when all completed, this might be a better traffic arrangement… but until it is completed and drivers know about it, it’s just dangerous.
