Does anyone know whos responsible for allowing the formula one style chicane being built on warrington rd spring view, outside the new housing development, and is a roundabout really needed especially one so badly designed.

That roundabout is an accident waiting to happen. I was through there at 4 45am the other morning and luckily there was no traffic coming towards me, but I just drove straight across while telling the people I was taking to the airport that there would be an accident there before long, talk about deja vu and to jyott217 the reply was on pride on general ,my e-mail address is on my bio if you want to get in touch

i was driving through it last tuesday and nearly got side swiped, those red barriers had been moved to leave a gap,so the trucks could use the round about.
but when your driving in a low car like mine, you cant see the gap until your on it....but the truck driver wasnt too bothered...he didnt slow down any!

It wasn't me in the truck 'neverstill', but am a trucker and agree with you all that there will be a serious accident before long, I almost got hit in the truck by a bus coming the other way last week, the bus driver came over onto my side of the road like he owned the road

I came through there today and I think they are altering it, I agree that it is definatly a serious accident waiting to happen A few times i have seen traffic going the wrong way and it is always when going towards Platt Bridge, you are on it before you see it and I wonder what strangers to the area think about it. It is a really blind spot.

Should be an interesting sight when they want to transport one of the trains from Springs Branch that way!
