Re: contraflow

When I tried... Irfanview.... reported that the file had the wrong file extension ... and needed to correct it... it was a web,,, something... and    Irfanview opened it as a .jpg file

Irfanview is FREE and simple to use...  Roll eyes

Re: contraflow

Sorry guys, don't know how it happened. I downloaded a picture then added into the post assuming it would open. It did on my phone, but I suppose it opened from my file rather than the one uploaded. Here's the web link. I didn't bother before because it's mostly redundant info, but the picture is funny.

Re: contraflow

A Canadian friend of mine has problems with roundabouts when he visits the UK.
I wonder how he would cope with this one Grin

I've once been on the magic roundabout in swindon and it must be said it took me totally by surprise! I didn't even know it existed so you can imagine my horror when I found we were going round it the wrong way lol. It was very weird!
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: contraflow

Yeah... the first time it is weird... you have to keep a "sense of direction" ... initially, I went around the outside .. as if on a giant roundabout.. and found my exit ... was a bit weird seeing cars coming in from the right all the time... but second time around... knowing where my exit "should be" it was a piece of cake to negotiate the mini roundabouts in the correct order ! ..  Cheesy

Re: contraflow

The most common mistake people make is to assume that the big island in the middle of the five roundabouts has any significance.
If it is treated as 5 mini roundabouts (which is what it is), then it's straightforward to navigate.
Whats more,  at certain times of day you can cross it quicker by going the long way round rather than the direct route.
