Motorists are getting themselves in a spin over how to handle the roundabouts on Carlisle’s new western 'bypass', it has emerged.
Have your say
@ADB - it is correct to stay in the left hand lane if you are travelling straight on - e.g. from Warwick Road to the A69.
What patronising rubbish is being spouted here.
"A lot of drivers in this area will have learned to drive a long time ago, and may only use the McVitie's roundabout and Hardwicke Circus"
If that is how you talsk about the your potential customers you really wont earn their respect. As for the comment "it is only a matter of time before there is a serious accident on the city's new relief road because many local motorists seem confused by the roundabouts" what do you mean local? This road carries traffic that was formerly travelling through the city, around it. That does not mean that those using the road are necessarily 'local'. What a waste of column inches.
Sorry AGB i'm confused!!. are you saying.... if im going from Tescos on Warwick Road to go straight over the rosehill roundabout towards Newcastle i have to use the right hand lane when approaching the roundabout?? that completely blows the 12 o'clock rule out of the window and also doesn't marry up with the diagram in the Online Highway Code showing Rule 185.
