Great idea for overhead signage. Hope you’ve taken the idea to Council. They sure don’t seem to read Sunlive. They could learn a lot if they did. Keep up your great thought provoking comments.

I’m hopeful there will be improvements as the roundabout road markings are not good and signage could be better. So hopeful. The Barked corner roundabout makes me anxious as the speed and multiple roads and lane cutting . I know how it works but people continuing going around the roundabout in a turn only lane scare me.

Obviously another example of skilled driving and it will only get worse with the proposed changes to SH29 through Tauriko/Cambridge Road.

Not surprised

Locals may understand which lane but with the only markings on the under queueing cars I have often had cars cut me off changing lane from a turn only lane . Better overhead signs for lanes and destinations.
