New Roundabout at UVic partially complete October 16th 2013

I thought it would interesting to make a short video of the traffic through the partially complete roundabout at Finnerty and Sinclair so that I can compare it to the finished one.

I did this at noon on Wednesday.   The traffic was light but did back up.  In part this is because the construction was delaying people though not all of it.   Roundabouts make the most sense as a replacement for traffic lights for low levels of traffic.  I am not certain this is the best location for a roundabout.

Details about the project can be found on the Saanich website
