You could throw a round circle of concrete at the junction of two roads and call it a roundabout or, as is the case with the new construction in the centre of our town Nyaung- U, take some time and make it decorative as well as practical.
Our stone mason artisans have been busy this past week putting the finishing touches on a new roundabout featuring figurative Myanmar reliefs. The middle has a beautiful garden.
Of course the art of ‘one-up-man-ship’ is always an issue in any town… our nearest roundabout is massive and includes a very popular play ground, exercise circuit and a very very old pagoda floodlit at night – located in the middle! Just saying.
