I have a feeling there will be lots of parts concerning Jounieh and other cities’ incompetence because it’s getting worse every day. After posting about the public intoxicated park they are planning [Part1], I hereby present you the most stupidly engineered roundabout worldwide, a roundabout that I believe will soon enter the Guinness book of records.
Here’s how a normal roundabout should look like.
And here’s how it was designed and implemented.
Pure Genius Ain’t it? As a result of that, cars getting stuck are going the wrong way since there are almost two lanes there thereby causing more traffic.
I didn’t get it.
Hmm, what did you not get?
The roundabout is positioned at the wrong place. I emailed you for a better illustration.
Plus come to think there is no need for such a large roundabout to begin with.
you had a different picture for your second illustration dude, now that you fixed it i get it
Just so people don’t think I’m crazy, this is the image you had before https://blogbaladi.com/images/howitis1-425×185.jpg
What’s a traffic boosting shortcut?
It’s a term I invented to descibe this road that makes no sense whatsoever and has no directions and is just there to cause more traffic.
Lol @ Mark …
I think before municipalities start sprinkling roundabout all over the place, it would be a bit more cost effective to teach people how to use the damn things… i promise you if roundabout discipline is respected, traffic in the Beirut suburbs, even around Mkalles and that area would be cut by at least 40%… as long as people dont know how you use them they are a waste of space and money…
btw, there was a roundabout in that location that fixed things a bit, but they tore it out, and now the new municipality is about to make the same mistake… fall in the hole once, you’re inattentive, fall in it twice, you’re just plain dumb…
