Magic Roundabout

The Magic Roundabout in Swindon, England was constructed in 1972 and consists of five mini-roundabouts arranged in a circle. It is located near the County Ground, home of Swindon Town F.C.

The roundabout was constructed according to the design of Frank Blackmore,[2] of the British Transport and Road Research Laboratory, under the control of Highways engineer Jeff Maycock of Swindon Council. Traffic flow around the smaller, inner roundabout is anti-clockwise, and traffic flows in the usual clockwise manner around the five mini-roundabouts and the outer loop.

Local and regular users are proficient at traversing the complex, which offers multiple paths between feeder roads. Virtually the same overall configuration has been in place for over 30 years.
