This junction is jamming up Didcot and now the A34 !

The junction of Great Western Park with the A4130 is causing ridiculous congestion at peak times. There needs to be a roundabout here, not traffic lights !! At peak times, the traffic is now gridlocked as far back as Didcot Parkway station in one direction, and recently, up on to the A34 in the other direction. It now takes longer to get from the Milton interchange to Great Western Park than it does to get from Oxford to Didcot ! Clearly this is not right. From one side of Didcot to the other, there are roundabouts all the way, and then everything gets stopped here at this junction. Replacing these traffic lights with a roundabout is what almost everyone agrees is needed, otherwise (with GWP continuing to expand) Didcot is going to grind to a stop...very soon.
