  1. I think a lot of the trouble is people thinking that it’s a roundabout when it’s not yet! As it is it’s only a cross road with a roundabout under construction.

    I feel they should of built each side first, leaving the highway running through the centre, the diveted while they closed of and joined the halves.

  2. It’s even worse turning right off the Ballarat road, I drove back to Colac from Beeac and was turning right and got half way around the roundabout and there is a Give Way sign there and the car in front just drove through and never gave way to the traffic coming from Geelong, he flashed his light and when I eventually turned I almost drove onto the old road next to the Golden Fleece, I pity anyone who is not familiar with the area, with the amount of traffic in the area lately there will be an accident there it’s only a matter of time, it is an accident waiting to happen
