Names for four new roundabouts in Weymouth


BBC News Article — “Votes on Olympic roundabout names in Weymouth” — reports that local residents are being asked to pick names for four new roundabouts being built as part of an £87 million relief road ahead of the 2012 Olympics.

The deadline for this is August 23.

The Dorset County Council member for transport said, “Since construction began, the roundabouts have been referred to using their location and normally construction engineers name a roundabout based on where it is or something near by, which can lead to some rather dull names.”

But what’s wrong with dull names?

The council member went on to explain that Weymouth is rich in history and has the best in both sea and countryside. It is on the Jurassic Coast. It is sorrounded by outstanding natural beauty. There are amazing archaeological and geological finds from the road building itself. Local people will be inspired to choose names.
