The new roundel at Broadway is operational. Church Road Marina has opened to exit off the Prom. Drivers should approach unmarked junctions, like the two roundels, slowly and smoothly, giving way to other users. Drivers are reminded that no one has priority at an unmarked junction and they should be cautious and considerate when navigating through the junction. Roundels are used extensively in the UK. The buff oval lines are the finished design with the block paving to be added at a later date - separate to this contract.
Roundels are designed not to have a traditional central island or a white domed marking due to the nature of their design. They also act as a form of traffic calming, with both roundels sited within the 20mph speed limit for Douglas Promenade.
The design principle was part of the planning approval, with visuals provided and shared on the MyProm website since the scheme began. Planning drawing can be viewed by clicking HERE
