How to Navigate a Roundabout

Contractors have begun construction of a new entrance to the Paul Reynolds Community Centre off Carrick Drive that will include the installation of a simple roundabout to smooth traffic flow in the area.

A roundabout is a circular intersection where two or more roads meet. Traffic circulates through them counter-clockwise, to the right of a center island. All entering vehicles must yield to traffic already in the roundabout.

Roundabouts are relatively new to St. John's and many of our motorists and pedestrians will be unfamiliar with how to navigate them. To familiarize yourself with how to safely use a roundabout we have installed an interactive tool on our website - click here to begin.

The new road configuration is scheduled to be in operation before the start of the 2016-17 school year.
