Roundabout Changes (again)

South Lanarkshire Council have once again assessed the width of traffic lanes at the roundabout at the end of Douglas Street and the positioning of give way markings (the Big H roundabout) at High Blantyre.

As of today, Friday 30th August 2019, give way lines have been painted back further towards their original location. New signage went up today.

We raised concerns here on this page regarding the new layout the day it opened on 7th July 2019, notifying the council. With road safety in mind, it was clear the lanes were too narrow and from comments on that post, many of you agreed, with lots of people witnessing near collisions.

Whilst the roundabout lanes still feel somewhat restricted in with, it is clear the re-painting of the give way lanes make the approaches safer. Did you notice the changes today?
