Description The Old Market Roundabout in Bristol, England, photographed from a tethered passenger balloon at 500 feet. Note that although the picture caption in the article calls this a Traffic Circle, in Bristol (and the rest of England as far as I know) they are called Roundabouts. Points of interest: It is illegal for vehicles to stop on the yellow hatched areas.
All entrances to this roundabout have traffic lights.
A road passes beneath the roundabout (with the red motorcycle on it).
The centre part has gardens.
To help pedestrians cross this roundabout, there is a bridge in the middle, and subways.
At bottom left is the tall block of the Marriott Hotel.
