The roundabout(road island) is called Hardwicke Circus, here's a map:

Each of the five entrances to the roundabout (three of which are dual carriageways) are (were) controlled by traffic lights which let traffic on to the roundabout sequentially.

Here's some pictures of the circus from January:

I went over the roundabout twice when the lights off in January, it really seemed to flow more smoothly. I shall be going round tomorrow and will let you know how it goes.
