    Alright there Alto? You would love really as if you want to go one way and it's snarled up you can go another way and get less snarled up but the worst thing to do is hesitate as they'll eat you alive

    Money spent on new means of transport or improving public transport is the answer as it is plain on the nose on my mush that traffic volume isn't going to cease.

    Giving an extra lane here n there is short sighted imo

    My old school was just a hundred yards up the road from the magic roundabout, in those days it was just one huge roundabout, do you remember that gaz? PS school was St Josephs

    I know St Jo's Laz but I am waaaay tooo youn to remember that lol

    My earliest memory of that roundabout is seeing an Pox fan trying to escape Swindon by climbing the massive street lamp in the centre. Luckily for him the police turned up as he was sliding down :-)
