REQUIRED: 3 ROUNDABOUTS ALONG THE A359 MUDFORD ROAD, JUST OUTSIDE OF YEOVIL.
1)On the junction of Stone Lane, Coombe Street Lane and Mudford Road.
2)On the junction of St.Michaels Avenue and Mudford Road.
3)On the junction of Lyde Road and Mudford Road.
If, like me, you regularly use this road, then you will know the 3 junctions that should be made into roundabouts,
Junction "1 & 2" cause long tailbacks in all directions at peak periods, and often 1 causes a knock-on effect with the other.
Junction "3" is unsafe, with vehicles entering Yeovil not realising there is a busy junction and bend there.
The os grid references for each site (displayed as x,y) are
