    Default NE Section. Portrack Roundabout

    How leathal is this roundabout since they made the "improvements" I must see at least 1 accident a week and have several near misses myself.

    Its totally crazy, locals seem to have no idea how to use it so god knows what first time users or visitors passing through must think.

    I think this is classed as a rant.

    Is this one on Portrack Lane where it meets the A19? What are the 'improvements'?

    Yeah thats the one, the improvements are hard to find. They spent 2.5 million on making it the most difficult and dangerous roundabout in the UK to navigate. It's Basically evey person for themselves now....race for the lane you want.

    Wish I still had the video camera, i would take a few trip around to prove my point.

    Multiple sets of traffic lights and several lane changes required mid-roundabout, whichever direction you want to go in. It's hideous.

    Its like a race track, everyone scrambling to get round it and not get hit by anyone else.

    Why is there 3 lanes to turn left onto portrack from a19 then reduce it to 2, obvious bottleneck and potential accident if not road rage incident
