Multi-Lane Roundabouts. Going Ahead.
Multi-lane roundabouts (Going Ahead)
Plan well ahead reading signs and road markings to establish the correct lane for the direction you want to go. Lane discipline is extremely important, position in the correct lane early and in the centre of your lane.
Position on approach – Position left for turning left and going ahead, right for turning right unless road markings, signs or road layout direct otherwise. You may use the right-hand lane for going ahead if the road markings indicate. With three unmarked lanes use the left lane for left, middle for going ahead and right lane for turning right.
Normal driving position – The left hand lane is our normal driving position. If you have two lanes marked for the direction you want to go then use the left of the choice.
Position on the roundabout – Unless directed otherwise use the left lane for turning left and going ahead. Right lane for turning right. You may use the right-hand lane for going ahead if markings indicate. If there are more than three lanes, then follow the road markings.
Exiting a roundabout – Check your mirrors and indicate as you pass the previous exit to the exit you’re taking. Finally, check your left side mirror before leaving the roundabout in the left-hand lane. If the left lane is not available, then take the right. Having exited the roundabout in the right-hand lane make your way into the left-hand lane at the earliest safe opportunity.
