SURELY I cannot be alone in my bemusement with the cluster of roundabouts connecting Merrywalks with the Bath Road and Cainscross Road? - Tim Presland writes.

It used to be something which at least frequent users could work out, until the lane system was reorganised.

The traffic travelling from Merrywalks to continue on the A46 is directed into the right hand lane on the second roundabout along with the traffic turning right for Cainscross Road.

The result is a rather tense negotiation and horn blowing exchange with some people sticking rigidly to the new directions and some deferring to the old system which frankly made a lot more sense.

What possessed anyone to think this new system would work better?
