The last exit on SH2 before Melling (heading north) is an overhead roundabout. If you want to go to LH then you go right around the roundabout and then down the ramp,
Driving instructors always tell you to slow down at a roundabout and if there is no traffic on the roundabout from the right, then proceed.
But this particular roundabout (perhaps because it's elevated) has barriers that prevent you from seeing traffic approaching from the right and so you have to stop to be safe.
You can see here you cannot see cars approaching from the right because of the wall. Perhaps if they had made the barriers more like motorway barriers that you can see through, then it would make for much more continuous and safer driving (IMHO)
