NT3167 : Sheriffhall Roundabout

near to Eskbank, Midlothian, Great Britain

Sheriffhall Roundabout.
Sheriffhall Roundabout.
Build a motorwayish road to bypass a major city. Invite lots of traffic, and stick a roundabout in the middle, with traffic lights!
A piece of costcutting from the 1980's and a guaranteed queue. Three busy roads all cross here. The reason for the lack of a split level junction here was that it was considered too expensive to make safe the mine workings under the site. Without remedial work, the ground cannot support the weight of a bridge.
