Traffic congestion on the A738 leading towards the Pennyburn roundabout is at an all time high, and with the closure of Dubbs Road to Kilwinning, drivers are now having to be more inventive to tackle the daily traffic congestion, the only way around this now is through haycocks, past the primary school and along the fire road in Kilwinning. Putting children’s life’s at danger due to the increased amount of agitated drivers plowing through the residential area that was not designed for heavy traffic, and has children walking to and from school. It’s about time that the roads leading to the roundabout and the roundabout it’s self are looked at to implement a new traffic management system. Having looked in comments about the roundabout and previous experience with traffic management systems, possible solutions could be; traffic lights added to the roundabout to allow unrestricted flow around it like at Whitletts roundabout in Ayr, a filter lane from the Kilwinning side straight onto the A78 Irvine and a filter lane on the stevenston side  straight into the A78 ardrossan. These would allow unrestricted access to the corresponding roads, increasing the flow of traffic on A738 as the traffic will Not have to give way to the roundabout to get onto the bypasses. This will free up the 2 lanes waiting to go onto the roundabout, left lane will filter straight onto the bypasses, removing the need to use the roundabout. middle lane will go straight only and right lane will go right only, from both sides. And of course, the removal of the bus lanes that most drivers do not agree with will also reduce congestion as drivers will be in their designated lane earlier and will be able to make use of the existing roundabout bypass at the small Morrison’s roundabout going into stevenston, but I doubt this will ever happen as we wouldn’t want to hurt our beloved stagecoach
