Art in Roundabouts
Roundabout design requires that the driver’s view across the centre of the circle be blocked, either by plantings or manmade structures. There are many examples in our region where art, or manmade landscape features have been used to improve the aesthetics of the neighbourhood. The design requirement to block the driver’s view across the roundabout is necessary and required for safe roundabout operation.
