Having not yet had the time to ask everybody in Cheshire for his/her opinion, I can only speak for myself I'm afraid. Local police have reported an overwhelmingly positive response to the new layout at Fountain Place, including people who thought it would never work, and were pleasantly surprised at how smoothly it worked in practice. And the work is not even finished yet, and not all of the signage is yet in place.

As for the roundabout at Dickens Lane, it was originally intended as a temporary measure, but also appears to have public support, particularly from people who previously found it difficult if not impossible to get out of Dickens Lane in busy periods. It's true that there have been some teething troubles, in part due to insufficient or hidden by bushes signage, but more because when something is changed, some people continue to behave as if nothing had changed. Sometimes this behaviour can be quite bizarre. Would you stop at a Pelican if the light was green and wave waiting pedestrians across against a red man? After they replaced the zebra crossing on Chester Road Poynton with a Pelican, that's precisely what some people were doing.
