Abstract

This paper presents a collation of comments received from Australian traffic and transport professionals in response to a survey about the current status of roundabouts in Australia. The survey posed questions related to the extent to which roundabouts are being built, replacement of roundabouts with signals or signals with roundabouts, use of roundabouts with metering signals and fully-signalised roundabouts, educating road users (drivers, cyclists, pedestrians) in using roundabouts correctly, public's view on roundabouts, current experience with roundabouts in terms of efficiency (delays, congestion), environmental aspects and safety, and future of roundabouts in Australia.
