New road to open up at Birdwell roundabout

Friday December 16 2016

A NEW traffic route will open at Birdwell roundabout on Monday with new temporary diversions also in place.

A diversionary route from the Cross Keys pub and along the new link road will be opened up.

The route will become part of the new public highway and will also provide a temporary route to allow the construction of a new link between Cross Keys Lane and Birdwell Roundabout.

Phase one of the scheme at Birdwell Roundabout will be completed today (Friday December 16)

Full details of the temporary traffic diversions can be found on the council’s website and social media.

Next, we need a few thousand new traffic lights and then traffic chaos will become a thing of the past....

Might need to put in some speed bumps if traffic starts moving quicker!

Bad driving... The road layout is no different to any other roundabout.

There's a grey camera just before the birdwell roundabout attached to one of the lamp posts. Is this a speed camera or what? Anyone know?
