Andreas Mangold from Ludwigshafen-based planning office Piske GbR, which was in charge of planning the new housing estate, explains the measure: “As the housing estate is directly connected to a state road via the roundabout, increased attention is required in this traffic zone. We were therefore directed by the Federal State Office for Mobility Speyer (Landesbetrieb Mobilität Speyer) to provide both the roundabout and its four accessible pedestrian crossing islands with a specific traffic guidance effect. For this reason, we opted for the alternating conventional installation of gray and white flat curbs produced by Wallmerod-based concrete block manufacturer Meudt. Two flat curbstones each measuring 30 x 25 x 50 cm in size – light-colored and dark-colored, respectively – were placed next to each other to form the boundary of the roundabout on the inside.
