Gurney Drive Roundabout, Penang

Gurney Drive Roundabout (GPS: 5.44066, 100.309) is a traffic circus in Gurney Drive, Penang. It is one of the few coastal roundabouts in Penang that were created more for aesthetics than for functional purposes, similar to the roundabouts in Queensbay.

Beautification of the Gurney Drive Roundabout was sponsored by a local property company, IJM, which spent about half a million ringgit to construct the centerpiece sculpture, called Wave of Prosperity. It depicts stylized steel waves with a flight of seagulls. The waves seem to emerge from the center of a fountain.

The Gurney Drive Roundabout is turfed with ornamental Japanese grass (Zoysia japonica). This fine-blade grass requires high maintenance. However, it is much nicer looking than the coarser carpet grass.
