    Hello

    Is this for real or is it a joke

    I would go nuts if I came (with my caravan) driving into this roundabout

    No mate, it's very real. I've negotiated it in an LGV. I wasn't expecting it either, nightmare.

    That must be a nightmare.... a lot of drivers struggle with the concept of one mini roundabout nevermind 5!!!

    It really p1sses me off when people forget that the 'give way to the right' rule still applies to mini roundabouts.... GRRR!

    This is unbelievable

    I have looked at the pictures and tried to understand

    In the centre you drive the opposite way around???

    There should be some kind of punishment for this idea

    I lived in Colchester for 10 yearsafter leaving the Army. They tested the first one of these out there and it still causes a few Women drivers are the worst, they haven't got a clue. Mind you some of the blokes aren't much better. You can go either clockwise or anti-clockwise around the main one but the normal rules apply to the small ones
