It's interesting that this announcement (including the apology for the delay) is being done in the name of the contractor. Had it all come in time & on budget would the contractor have been given the credit?

I'm not sure finishing a job on budget or time is anything to shout about? Finishing early and under budget perhaps.

I wonder if the new 'fixture' at Broadway is one of these trendy multi-user things, where it theoretically makes it safer for vulnerable users by slowing everyone down and making them figure out what is going on.

I think I've seen similar in Oxford, but there, the local view is go for it and hope nobody steps out.

But where is the traffic to go? Between the lines, or following them?  

The crossing outside of  Admiral House - is that a pedestrian crossing or not?

Were these designed approved by a traffic management consultant or some GCSE installation art student?  At least if it was Banksy there would be some acerbic wit in there. 

Does anyone in DOI actually understand that if it is not clear how to use a road, the likely consequences are serious, if not grave? 

This is not designing a patio FFS.

*I was told this last week from someone who should know these things and who had consumed a few to many if you know what I mean.

"The person who drew the conceptual plans for the prom quit their job with no notice, just walked off without even clearing their desk at the sea terminal in the first week that the construction started"

ETA Worth a FOI Joseum?

I think that if you get an overhead shot looking down it’s absolutely clear where traffic goes. It’s round the outer lane. Unless you’re in a big vehicle

Is it actually a roundabout then.  There are no stop or giveaway markings and the similar ones in the UK you don’t have to go around

I'm not so sure. The outer lane seems to be very guided towards broadway exit. Personally I'd just drive a bit more towards my intended exit (if northbound prom), directly accross 'lane 2'

There are stop lines at entry rather than giveaway

It’s going to be carnage.  People concentrating on not getting sideswiped won’t notice the pedestrians on the crossings on their exit from the “thing”

Plus I thought by law a stop or giveaway line was white and reflective.  Those are neither

Planning application:

The lines don’t match the picture JW just posted.  This is what I had seen also, hence saying no stop lines as if there were as on the application you would also have to stop when exiting

The match looks pretty good to me, once they are aligned:

That seems a bit  hysterical to be honest.

It's basic enough.  What is difficult about it?

Nope.  Your diagram shows lines on the entrance and exits.  The photo only on (2 of) the entrances.  I assume these are what John interpreted to be stop lines.
