Cast your mind back to those geography lessons when you were told that a crossroads was one of the reasons why a town developed on a particular site. Banbridge and Ballygowan have always struck me as being the two classic examples in Co Down. The main road here was from Bangor, Newtownards and Comber to the county town at Downpatrick (via Saintfield). The flow of traffic over the crossroads is now controlled by a roundabout. The sign has a white background indicating that the roads, although classified A, are not primary ones. See also J4363 : Roundabout in Ballygowan (October 2009).
