Interesting Round-About Designs on the Roads of Jeddah (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia)

About the snapshots :

Today's snapshots highlight how artistic and innovative one can get while planning, designing and executing as humble a road feature as the round-abouts at road intersections that each one of us encounter at the road intersections.

Of course, one can extend a statement that cash or mineral rich nations can afford to have larger-than-life things which other nations cannot. But, don't we all know that its only a limp excuse to make.

All it actually requires is a will to do something awesome, and an efficient and willing management/ authority. Such designs and architectural features provide an aesthetic and larger-than-life civil engineering based entities that not only are a pleasure to watch, but also do their basic job-- MANAGE TRAFFIC AT INTERSECTIONS.


Note:- BRICKS-n-MORTAR recommends its readers to have a look at informative and meaningful article on round-abouts / road intersection designs at roundabouts.net, which the BnM's Edesk came across while surfing the net for more information on road intersection designs. A must read, we must say!
