Trouble with A701
In my opinion, the trouble with the A701 near Gowley Moss is not just the roundabout but the dual carriageway itself.
One minute it’s a dual carriageway and the next it comes into a single road, which also has a bus lane added – there should never have been a bus lane on such a small stretch of road.
Also, a lot of people speed to beat the traffic lights at the junction at the roundabout. If people used their indicators properly then at least people would know what way they were taking. I’ve seen it so many times – people don’t use them at all.
