A roundabout has been given a fresh lick of paint after warnings that it could cause a serious accident.

The mini roundabout at the junction of Deacons Hill Road and Allum Lane in Borehamwood was so badly worn down that people were unable to recognise it as a roundabout.

Following complaints from residents, it has now been repainted and remarked.

Antony Gee, of Deacons Hill Road, said he was really pleased with the result.

He said: “Some persistent communication with the contractors has resulted in the roundabout and the junction being safer for all road users and pedestrians; a perfect result.”
