‘B&Q’ Roundabout Modifications

It seems that that planned change to turn the ‘B&Q’ roundabout into a traffic light junction has changed into a much smaller scheme with some slight modifications to lanes and one of the roundabouts.


I can see why this scheme has changed as it’s obviously alot cheaper to implement, and with the main congestion problem being vehicles wanting to turn left from Saxon Street into Watling Street East being allocated their own lane it should help.  Sadly it looks like the second biggest cause of Traffic buildup, the Pedestrian crossing outside Tesco, is staying.  Work is due to start shortly.

  1. I think getting Tesco to move their entrance (only, not exit) onto Saxon St would be the best solution, personally. It could move to the far end right by the railway bridge.
