Roundabout removed

THE crumbling roundabout at the corner of Condamine and Canning Sts met its fate recently when the overgrown hazard was removed and replaced with give-way signs - at least for now.

A council spokeswoman said the roundabout - near Warwick East School - was removed for safety reasons when crews were in the area doing Fitzroy St water infrastructure prep work for resurfacing.

"This roundabout was badly damaged in the floods and subsequently had people driving over it," she said.

"There are now give-way signs on approaches from Condamine St to this intersection and drivers are advised to be aware of the changes and obey the give-way signs."

She said the future of the intersection was yet to be decided by council.

Earlier this year a Warwick man was issued with a ticket for not keeping left of the roundabout after he drove over it. He told the court he planned to fight the charge based on the roundabout's condition.

In November another local man - who declined to be named - told the Daily News he had seen many people driving over the roundabout and witnessed havoc as people dodged and weaved to avoid potholes in the area as well.

But motorists are still in for a bumpy ride on Condamine St just metres from the roundabout, with council having no immediate plans to deal with the numerous potholes on the stretch of dirt road running alongside the school.

The spokeswoman said work going on around the corner of Fitzroy St would not extend to that flood-damaged patch of road.
