Videos of Roundabouts on the A46 around Lincoln

These are a few videos of the roundabouts that we encounter on the A46. You may find it useful to watch them before we cover that particular roundabout, or to refresh your memory just before you take the driving test.


If you have a Smart TV you will be able to watch on a large screen, which is much clearer. Just go to your YouTube App and search Exqcy

This is Sadler Road, turning right at Teal Park roundabout then following the route to Lincoln. At Whisby roundabout, it is turn right for Lincoln (A46N). Usually for a turn right at a roundabout you would go in to the right hand lane as you approach, but at this particular roundabout there is a road marking showing A46N as the middle lane on approach, and lane 1 around the roundabout.

When coming down the A46 from Newark you may be heading for Lincoln. Approach in the right lane and take the 3rd exit. You may then have to turn right just before the Jet garage, if so make sure you get square in the turning lane and don't go too far forward.

If you head North on the A46 and need to turn right at Whisby roundabout, you need to accurately follow the lane as this is a spiral roundabout. 

This is Damons or Doddington Road roundabout. We are going to turn right. It is a spiral roundabout so you must accurately follow the lane - round the outside once past the second exit - DON'T CUT ACROSS

This video shows the roundabout near the Bentley Hotel. We are turning right to follow the A46 to Grimsby. It is usually very busy and hard to find a gap but if you look for traffic coming into Lincoln it will sometimes block the traffic coming down the A46 and create a gap for you (the 12 O'Clock Blocker). 

Usually we join the A46 bypass at a roundabout. However at Thorpe on the Hill we join it from a slip road. This can be a challenge as the slip road is only about 80 metres long. You need to be totally aware of all the traffic around you before you decide it is safe to join the dual carriageway.

This is quite a long video. It is here to demonstrate country driving, where you drive to the limit point. Reduce the speed before you reach the bend, steer around the bend, then when the limit point increases sqeeeeze the gas.
