A Busy Urban Junction in Germany

A Busy Urban Junction in Germany
This roundabout in L├╝beck is an example of how not to do things. There is no cycling infrastructure, and unusually in my experience it has more than one lane. It's usually rammed with motor traffic, and it represents a really unpleasant barrier between the historic city centre and the station, which is a route that many, many tourists will want to take. Despite the very high levels of motor traffic, the asphalt is in generally good condition, though I can see a couple of pothole candidates behind the person on a bike that probably would not be problematic for cyclists (they appear to be due to a bad carriageway section join). The dark grey patches you can see on the roundabout itself are the result of yet another attempt by the city authority to make this junction work.
