Reply To: Irelands Ten Worst Roundabouts
Diaspora, there is a very good roundabout just outside Kilkenny, on the Callan road to be precise, which superbly routes all southern traffic away from the city towards Dublin. Admittely it has a lower traffic flow than other well-known junctions, but…
The Walkinstown roundabout has to be Ireland’s worst. At rush hour, it is virtually impassable. Gridlock is a regular occurence. One of the problems is that there are three lanes on some of the approach roads into the roundabout – and there are six busy approach roads going into it. The biggest problem is that, unlike the Red Cow, they can’t put lights on it because there are so many approach roads.
btw, is it true there’s only one roundabout in the whole of America, or is that an urban myth?
