I HAVE just negotiated the nightmare that is Canford Bottom Roundabout on the A31.
What were the planners thinking? I use this route every day (sometimes twice or more) and I have seen cars driving through red traffic lights, crossing lanes illegally and blocking others cars’ entrance and exits.
The traffic light sequencing is totally wrong and there are far too many sets of lights.
The signs are too close together and right on top of each other, so that people who do not know the area end up not knowing which is the correct lane for them. All this through lack of foresight of whoever dreamt up this answer to a problem that, in my opinion, did not exist in the first place.
The roundabout as it is at the moment is a tragic fatal accident waiting to happen.
