It's still terrible - we've been living with it for over a year now and it never gets better. Even on a Friday or Saturday night, trying to get on SZR is a 20 minute journey. I leave home by 6:30am now so I can to avoid the traffic. I'd rather get up early and have a 1 minute journey to SZR than spend up to an hour in traffic for the same route!

I drop at school then go up to street 2, join the nightmare road and go back on myself to the roundabout, it is quicker if that makes sense, than joining it at street three where the fountain is?

Yep - I've tried every route you can possibly think of and some of them are marginally less bad than others, but now I just skip it all together. So I get into work 45 minutes early - I'll live.

3rd Street (the Fountain) is a shocker but it's even worse if you try to join on 4th or 5th. There are just too many cars all feeding in at various points to get access to one exit point.

2nd street is best for me, cut my journey down by about 20 mins at least

I commiserate with you. I don't have to go out in the mornings very often but when I do I realise that it would drive me mad to do that journey on a daily basis.

It doesn't help when drivers "jam" the roundabouts with their inconsiderate driving.

Can you not go out the rear end of the greens or is that just as bad?

Exactly - and not everyone who lives in the Greens does the school run you know, although sometimes it feels like it! School hols a few weeks ago were bliss for the rest of us.
