Re: Roundabout at the corner of Ryan and Lerwick.
I am glad that Mr. Watkins who wrote another well-written letter about the roundabout and others who wrote, too, and phoned me agree, that this matter deserves a competent engineer who can make it work.
I can see the change done easily in three weeks at very little cost.
First week — the southeast corner at Thrifty Foods. Enlarge the space/curve by about three metres – gain more space. The traffic would be affected very little.
Second week — do the same space-gaining change at the northeast corner at Home Depot.
Third week — do the same at the northwest corner at NIC and then find the centre of this enlarged intersection — likely a bit east from the present.
Next — bring large pots with small trees overnight and place them in the circle (size to be determined ) around this centre. Turn the lights off, paint some lines and put out warning signs. Functioning roundabout is finished.
Finishing touches on the island can be done at later date.
