Over a number of years, traffic lights in Switzerland have slowly and surely been replaced by roundabouts to improve traffic flow. However, it is not that simple to merely plant a roundabout in the middle of existing crossroads. More often than not, the space provided allows only a limited size of roundabout so that large vehicles such as buses and trucks can make the turns. And so some roundabouts are rather small. But let’s forget traffic technology.

All these new roundabouts across the country have given us a wealth of roundabout design culture, from raised slabs of concrete that look something akin to a sunken UFO, to exotic sculptures which probably only the artists understand and superb seasonal flower displays that bring joy to the hearts of avid gardeners and all those who should have their eyes on the road.
