      • It’s a very dodgy roundabout, not helped by all the junk in the middle of it (those who think it’s a good idea to put art or trees on roundabouts have obviously never tried to cycle around one!).

        Jokingly, the nearby Tesco is classed as ‘Manston’, but I once tried walking to it from Manston village and it’s virtually impossible.

        • Be even worse once the new parkway station opens. Drivers from the ramsgate side will be using the sevenscore roundabout to do a U turn back to ramsgate. Drivers coming from the minster side will be using the lord of the manor roundabout to do a U turn to get to the station.

          Yet another well thought out infrastructure plan by KCC, putting alot more traffic onto the roundabouts.

  1. I’d love to hear the reply. I was heading from Richborough towards lord of the Manor at the time. Not a witness as I didn’t see anything. At sevenscore roundabout an articulated lorry was crossing and slowed on sevenscore roundabout. I saw blue lights an ambulance coming from lord of the Manor and heading towards richborough. Also saw something like steam in the air. Thought it was on the new station maybe tarmac gangs working. Exited the roundabout to continue my journey. Passed the lorry and saws two heavily damaged vehicles. One was a citroen xsara picasso i believe the other was maybe a silver wv polo. Maybe making way for the ambulance caused the incident and don’t blame anyone. Just amazed the secamb crew didn’t notice. But that’s my opinion and I’m not blaming anyone as I didn’t really have a view. Hope all involved are ok.

  2. Poor driving possibly, on Friday night a Uber driver doing 60 on Canter bury Rd by KE school going from one lane to another because of parked vehicles.
