I think this lunacy deserves a thread of its own as I believe there will be a reasonable number of opinions given.
Thamesweb brought to our attention the article in The Royal Borough Observer, describing how a fountain is to be built on the roundabout. Our very own Cllr Bathurst is reported to have said. "I can't see how the fountain would make it worse and it might even make it better as a traffic calming effect." Am I alone in thinking that this is the sort of comment we would expect from a child who has yet to find out the distractions of driving. The roundabout must be a nightmare already for visitors. Perhaps overhead direction signs, instead of the ones on the road (covered by the vehicles in front) or the low ones which can be hidden by vans and lorries, could be provided to help motorists.
Whatever the outcome, and as pleasant as I am informed he is, The Cllr Bathurst Comedy Show rolls on.
