ROAD: Alarm over roundabout

Has anyone else who uses Laverock Hall Road wondered how there has never been an accident during the ridiculous construction of the new roundabout, which I might add is now a month over schedule?

Also, whose bright idea was it to put a roundabout on what was once the only decent stretch of road in and out of Blyth in the first place? Obviously someone who won’t have to or doesn’t use this road.

Perhaps the same planner who put the cycle track on different sides of the road with no decent crossing point?

Can anyone tell me whether the speed limit is going to be reduced from 50mph once it is complete since there is now a housing estate only metres away from the road. A very scenic view out of someone’s living room window.
