Traffic madness

THE NEW road layout at the roundabout on the A472 near Pontypool Tesco has one, yes, just one set of traffic lights on it.

So, when travelling via this roundabout in the direction of Tesco you can be faced with a green traffic light, giving you clearance to proceed but as there are no other lights on this roundabout you will be confronted with, or even hit by, uncontrolled traffic coming from your right hand side, because there are no other lights on this junction.

Highway planners’ aarrrgh!!! Stand up and be counted, yes! Identify yourselves. There have already been very near misses here, once again down to your ineptitude.

It's a shocker of a roundabout now - and there was nothing wrong with it in the first place!

Surely it's the Mcdonalds roundabout they need to be sorting out, how many accidents have there been down there - I saw two last week

These planners must be on another planet, Where else would we see two pelican crossings within a few metres of each other and a bus stop within the zig zag area on both of them? Do these planners know that the marked area near a crossing should be kept clear for the safety of people using the crossing? This could only happen in Pontypool...
