Yes, the round­about is too small

The Wokingham Paper - - VIEWPOINTS -

The let­ter last week about the round­about for the Shin­field Re­lief Road was ab­so­lutely cor­rect, it is very nar­row in­deed. I drove down the new road it­self yes­ter­day and can re­port that the round­about by the new sci­ence park build­ing is even worse!

The two ap­proach lanes merge into one on the round­about it­self with no prior warn­ing. This is very wor­ry­ing and po­ten­tially dan­ger­ous.

The two cars in front of me both had to brake very quickly when it be­came ob­vi­ous to the driv­ers that they were be­ing forced to­gether. I am sur­prised that this has been al­lowed to oc­cur ei­ther by Wok­ing­ham Coun­cil or Thames Val­ley Po­lice from a road safety per­spec­tive and it needs to be sorted out.
