Further changes will be made to a new roundabout system after complaints from drivers about the lanes around it.
Bracknell Forest Council has announced it is looking to change the timings of the lights and road markings leading to the roundabout near the Horse & Groom Harvester in Bagshot Road.
The authority had received complaints over the lane markings had led to dangerous "lane-jumping" while travelling around the roundabout.
Neil Mathews, principal engineer (traffic and safety) at Bracknell Forest Council said: “Our 18-week programme of improvement works to the Horse and Groom roundabout was delivered on time and the traffic lights were switched on last week (Thursday, June 6).
“As with all large projects, refinements are always required in the early stages and our engineers will be making minor changes to the traffic light timings and road markings on the junction.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank drivers and residents for their patience during these works, and hope they are getting used to the new layout of the road and additional lanes that it provides."
