TWO new roundabouts designed to make Mirfield’s roads safer have caused at least three bumps in the first week.

The roundabouts in Dunbottle Lane left drivers baffled, especially when warning signs were left covered in grey paint until Wednesday.

Tim Wood, whose pub the Old Colonial is between the two roundabouts, said: “I’ve had customers complaining that someone nearly hit them.

“I’m all for road safety but on this occasion it seems to have made more problems than we had before.”
