We drive "on the left".
If you are not used to roundabouts, remember that if you are on a two-lane highway:
- you should be in the left lane to turn left or go straight over the roundabout
- you should be in the right lane if turning right from the roundabout.
Always give way to vehicles already on the roundabout. When you are on the roundabout you have right of way over vehicles waiting to join.

You are on crewe Road and passing an Esso gas station. The runway is visible on your left.
- Continue to a large roundabout at King’s Sports Centre and go straight, continuing along Crewe Road which is now a dual carriageway.
