Roundabouts

Roundabouts

Many new roundabout installations confuse drivers. Recently created roundabouts become damaged with chipping edges, tire markings on the roundabouts curb and this causes issues for drivers and traffic authorities. In addition many of them have glaring light islands for pedestrian crossings right in front of them which makes the roundabout almost invisible. Beckstones help the situation by marking the otherwise invisible inner circle. In this application Beckstone functions as a warning indicator as well as routing marker for traffic flow.
It especially beneficial for all bus and truck drivers since Beckstones make the curb visible so long-vehicles drivers can steer more precisely through those tight traffic installations. Damaged curbs caused by rear axle of long vehicles are a thing of the past.

Most roundabouts can be upgraded easily and reasonably with Beckstones. The inner curb can be extended by a beveled line of additional pavers. This way the current installation can stay the way it was originally designed. You will have a return on investment right away by less cost for landscaping, low energy bills, no exchange of illuminants and the first avoided damages and accidents.
We have experience with the usage of Beckstones along roundabout installations. Let us know your ideas and we get you sketches, technical drawings or edited picture according to you project requirements. Beckstones uses energy efficiently LED-technology. So you do not need to worry about the prohibition of incandescent bulbs in the future
