Hmmm...   Would Kavi care to detail their qualifications, training and experience and knowledge of the project requirements and constraints, and therefore competence, to justify making such observatio

It wouldn't have mattered where it was located or if it was a simple t-junction, traffic lights or a roundabout, someone on this forum would have been up in the middle of the night plinking on their k

The Dunning Kruger effect as it applies to roundabout design? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect

I am extremely disappointed to inform any who haven't used the new roundabout at North Lochside that in my humble opinion I found approaching, going through and exiting it was a very dull experience.


I too am annoyed that despite passing through this roundabout several times a day it has given me no grounds for excitement, whilst others have unfairly been able to squeeze a right good pleepse out of it.


I don't recall be asked my opinion about the design of the roundabout.


I blame the SIC, DVLA, Amenity Trust, Recreational Trust, Arts Trust, Mareel's popcorn, Charitable Trust, Jonathan Wills and the Windfarm who are all obviously incompetent.


It's one rule for them, another for the rest of us etc etc etc

Been through it several times this week and, in all fairness, no problems at all.


However, if I might be permitted a few 'observations'....


Why was it not made 'level'?    Roads, generally, are expected to be flat(?) and level and passing up the opportunity to maintain this standard(?) appears to be a little strange.  Seems to me that more than a few people are going to get caught out by the strange camber if there is a 'hard' frost and/or a bit of snow.


Approaching from the Grantfield end, it is almost as if there is no 'obstruction' there at all.  I wonder if this will confuse(?) some drivers using it to the point where they might not judge the speed of other vehicles correctly?


As I said earlier, only time will tell..

Having passed through it several times per day since it opened I encountered my first problem today, while traveling south I met a large articulated truck, it was clear that the truck would have to cross into my lane to get around the north exit causing me to stop, no problem in that at all but maybe the north exit is a bit tight after all.

I have seen no problem with the roundabout, I have been passed t on a few occasions in my transit van. Don't find the turn tighter than any other roundabout. As with everything, it's a little strange at first as you are that used with it not being there but will soon get used to it.


Suppose the real question is, does anyone really agree with any of the changes being made at lochside and Staney hill?
