I have known this junction could cause problems for some time, but I have never used it when it has been busy before, the first time that I do and a driver pulls out in front of me as I am travel down the road.
This junction is easy enough to get across if you are coming uphill on West street, but if you are coming downhill or from Lambton Street there is no indication of who has priority, when this is added to with drivers coming off the bypass, it leads to a bit of a mess.
I assumed it would work like some kind of a roundabout where you should give way to my right. The driver coming off the bypass had ideas their own. Causing me to make a sudden stop in the middle of the junction.
Also the left turn if going from Lambton street to go up West street is very tight when you have cars waiting on your right hand side, the concrete splitter with a vertical kerb forced me to ride on the wrong side of the road.
My ideas for fixing this would be to stop cars coming off or going on to the bypass here. All trafic for Tescos and the carparks around the library could use the junction on High Street.
