THE GEOMETRIC DESIGN OF ROUNDABOUTS

This advice note provides guidance on the principles for safety and traffic operation on which the Department of Transport's standard for the geometric design of roundabouts TD 16/84 (see TRIS 392727) is based and is intended to be read in conjunction with it. Recommendations are given in this advice note on the siting of roundabouts in urban and rural areas, geometric design, crossfalls and segregated left turning lanes. Some aspects of signs and road markings are included for completeness. (TRRL)
