about

Early 2013: Inspired by the UK's first ring-road, and its legendary double circle, sorely missed :)

Movie @ bit.ly/Kingsway

lyrics

Many years ago Great Britain's first ring road
Was built around Dundee.
On the bank of the Tay, the mighty Kingsway,
A super sight to see.

Kingsway, oh Kingsway, you save us lots of time.
Kingsway, oh Kingsway, your circles are so fine.

The jewel in the crown some would say
Was the double-circle at the top of the kingsway.
From north to south, east to west,
The double circle was the best.
You could come in from Arbroath
And use one circle or both,
Down to the town, west to Perth
Or north to Forfar and Aberdeen,
But if you made a figure of eight
You'd be back to where you'd been.

But the double-circle didn't last,
Their concrete curves are a thing of the past.
Now junctions fill that space,
And too many traffic lights take their place.

From the flow of the circle to the stop of the lights
Progress travels on.
And the cars and lorries through the day and night
Keep the Kingsway going strong.
