hi, is this correct

Neighbourhoods area, and is it singular or plural

Hello naddy,

Off the top of my head, I can't think of a context in which 'neighbourhoods area' would be correct. It might be 'neighbourhood's area' (as in 'in my grandparents' neighbourhood's area there are no restaurants'), but that's a little awkward. 

Without having a better idea of what it means, I'm afraid I can't even say if it's singular or plural or much else about it. If you can provide the sentence it's in, and even the sentences before and after, I expect one of us can work out what it means.

Best wishes,

In my hometown, there are lots of traffic lights had been located along two sides of the street. In that case, it helps the street always bright and safety even when you walk along.

My home is in far away from city town so I don't see traffic light so much but street lights are in middle of the road. There is a crossroads in 200 meters away from my home. There is a roundabouts in 1 kilometer away from my house. Of course we walk on pavements in the road.

Actually, my home is located near crossroads, so i can see crossing,traffic lights , signpost and street lights.

Why why why

About 200 metres north my home there is a crossroads, signposts, and crossing. If you are looking for a bus, then go west crossroads approximately 500 metres you will find a bus stop right there next roundabout. You should be vigilant when you are there to protect yourself from accidence because it's a rush hour.

I see such street lights, pavement and crossroads. Actually my home is not close to city center. So I don't see a lot things. But when we go to city center from my home, we see a great of numbers pavement, street lights that look like tulip,3 crossroads and 4 roundabouts.

Outside the street where I live, all of these things can be found. Well, almost everthing, except bus stops, this structures are the furthest things you could see.

in my city, I see several roundabouts near me but there are also traffic lights in many paces.
