Not a fan of the roundabout really. Five way roundabouts are
not pleasant to navigate, and definitely not small ones. I
sat all my driving tests at 5 Cross Roads in Hamilton and it
is one intersection that I always go out of my way to avoid.
The position of that roundabout on Princes St was not great
either - there are times of the day when the sun makes it
impossible to see what's coming from the right and the fact
that it is not on flat ground makes it even more difficult.
If they had any sort of raised roundabout constructed, it
would block the view of the cars coming down Stafford and
Manse Streets to the cars driving up Jetty St and vice versa.
This is the way I drive to and from work everyday. I would
almost certainly change my route if a roundabout was
Like other commentators I too found this way better. Traffic
flowed really well, except when the odd driver and a couple
of cyclists got a little confused with what happens at a
roundabout, so nothing new there.
One day, hopefully, we will stop seeing pesticides as a
solution to environmental crises. Crises largely of our own
making. How we view our relationship with fellow citizens in
this Earth community needs new thinking.
I ve been lucky enough to have been to 4 of the games above
and have seen some great action. FB will never
have the character Carisbrook had but the dry track makes
for entertaining rugby and the ground is well set
up if you need fed and watered.
Top game for me? The first Crusaders v Highlanders game, with
the 2014 match close behind.
I agree, bring it back. From
my experience with driving through that
intersection daily, the temporary roundabout worked much
better. Would be interested to know what the crew
working there that day thought of the traffic flow.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is a political
body, not a scientific body. It has no credibility because
its predictions of global warming and accelerated sea-level
rise have proved to be wrong. The test of a scientific theory
is the accuracy of it's predictions. Why should we believe
the future predictions of computer models, when they have
failed in their past predictions.
Please, bring back the roundabout – it was *way* better than
the lights. The traffic flowed freely and the rush hour
queues were much shorter than when the lights were running
(at least when I saw them they were).
