Oteramika / Rockdale Rd/ Tweed str Roundabout new.

John from East Invercargill

On my walk this morning trying to take in the last of these beautiful summery days before the onset of winter chills drives us indoors I noticed a sign at the corner where Tweed crosses Rockdale Rd and turns into Oteramika Rd . By standing there I was able to read it , not that anyone in a car might , something about they are soon to start making this corner into a roundabout and to expect delays / detours . Next time I walk / ride past I shall check the expected start times but the heat from the sun forced me to seek shade before I melted. I think it was in a couple of weeks. I was too busy thinking that will make that an interesting corner now seeing as some truck and trailor units , plus other vehicles , are still doing 100 k's when they hit that junction. Of course it may aid those that are fleeing Police that seem to love Tweed as their escape route making it Russian Roulette at that corner. Enjoy the sun while you can .
