Overall, roundabouts can be an improvement for all users. In this case, the users include transit riders who will see increased convenience on this route.

When they are designed correctly, roundabouts can help keep traffic moving smoothly rather than idling at traffic lights. I certainly hope this one is designed to create a slow and respectful intersection. Roundabouts have been proven to lower the amount of injury and damage even if a collision does occur.

It is very important that these roundabouts be designed for safe crossing by people who are walking. With two lane roundabouts speeds can be higher, which creates a difficult crossing for walkers.
