Letter - Roundabouts need to be reconsidered

Now that the funding for the replacement of the Town End traffic lights has been granted, perhaps it is now time to consider whether replacing them with roundabouts is actually of any benefit.

I was recently in a queue opposite Goodworth Butchers, the time was 5.56pm and I was through the lights at exactly 6pm, a total of four minutes.

When you consider that on roundabouts you give way to traffic from the right can you really believe that traffic flow will improve on four minutes?
