The KUFA-Roundabout in Lyss
The project’s initiator was the neighbouring concert-organising body KUFA. The player is not only very well suited due to its round shape but also creates a closeness to its surroundings as symbolic as it is funny.
LP of the week
Yet it was a long journey from its inception to implementation. KUFA, the Gehri Aarberg construction firm, the Lyss county council and the department of civil engineering held their breath for four years, to ultimately set in motion and execute their project.
Alongside the planning and approval, the works themselves were not quite a walk in the park, with one example seeing volunteers busy for a full week, with attaching the approx. 800 metal plates to the record player.
You sexy thing
At the same time, one may well assume that “the sexiest traffic roundabout on earth“ is able to draw a smile from drivers too.
What the turntable is still missing, however, is a tone arm. It has not (to date) been included, for security reasons and due to a scarcity in funds. It may still happen, when the speed is turned down to 33⅓.
