Tarpots mini-roundabouts installed in 1989

The replacement of the traffic lights with twin mini-roundabouts.

The photo below is from the Evening Echo in 1989 and shows the final stages of installation of the twin mini-roundabouts. The number plates support this with one having an “F”prefix¬† number plate which were issued in 1988.

This picture also shows a policeman watching traffic on the right hand side of the picture, which shows this was the first day of operation.

The roundabouts remained in place until 2012 when they were replaced with traffic lights!
