Just a quick note for those who like doing different things — but TfL is conducting trials of new roundabout designs that may, possibly, be safer for cyclists and pedestrians.
A bit of a hot potato politically as the cyclist lobby is exceptionally vocal.
As noted by the BBC, there are trials, described as happening “at a research laboratory in Berkshire”.
A single sentence in their article said: “Members of the public can participate in the trials.”
Simple really – fill in this form and be willing to spend half a day at their test centre between Wokingham and Bracknell.
If nothing else, it’s something different to do, and you can go home feeling that you contributed in your own small part to road safety improvements.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
