It’s time for traffic lights, Albany

Albany Advertiser

Letter to the editor

As a visitor to your town, I am amazed by the number of roundabouts but think it might be time Albany had traffic lights.

The first major roundabout on the way into town on the Albany Highway is confusing for tourists like myself and my wife, who arrived over the long weekend.

Five roads entering a roundabout is not logical.

Why not put in traffic lights, like Bunbury has at its major highway roundabout?

It seems I am not alone in my thoughts either, many other visitors we spoke with held the same view and thought something must be done.

I can’t imagine what it is like for truck drivers or those towing caravans to use this ridiculous intersection.
