Canberra is often labelled the roundabout capital of Australia, with locals and tourists alike consistently poking fun at the seemingly absurd number of traffic circles in the city.
But now the new William Maker Drive and Northern Distributor Road roundabout is complete and open, there's potential that's a title Orange could actually lay claim to.
Even if it is based on a technicality.
Orange doesn't come close on sheer number of roundabouts with the newest addition - also one of the biggest - taking the city's tally to 45 compared to Canberra's estimated 410.
But comparing the two cities per capita tells a different story, one in which Orange sneaks past Canberra and blitzes the Central West's other main - and arguably more comparable - centres.
With the numbers crunched, Orange has roughly 890 people per roundabout compared to Canberra's 980.
Bathurst and Dubbo pale in comparison, with 31 and 34 roundabouts respectively both cities sit well above the 1000 people per traffic circle mark. The nation's other capital cities all boast similar, or higher numbers.
They do manage traffic flow well in Orange and that helps with safety, so it's a good thing [Orange City Council] keep building more around.Orange Driving School's Graham Kidson
Of course, the point of roundabouts is to manage traffic flow and, in turn, increase safety levels for motorists.
As one of the people who uses Orange's plethora of roundabouts the most, Orange Driving School's Graham Kidson firmly believes they do just that.
"There does seem to be thousands in Orange," he said, with a laugh.
"They do manage traffic flow well in Orange though I think and that helps with safety, so it's a good thing [Orange City Council] keep building more around where they're needed."
For a driving instructor, the abundance of roundabouts certainly provides excellent teaching opportunities for Mr Kidson, who offered some sage advice relevant to not just learners but all drivers.
"The best advice for roundabouts, I think, is to approach them slowly," Mr Kidson said.
"When you approach a roundabout slowly it gives you a lot more time to react to what's happening around, a lot more time to stop or indicate or to make any decisions."
Residents had previously expressed concerns over safety during peak hour, while then councillor and now deputy mayor Glenn Taylor had raised issues with it way back in 2016.
