  • Hi There has been a white arrow painted showing the direction for traffic and road markings at the bottom of the road, but it isn't stopping the cars from entering St. Peter's Road from Bigthan Road. This is where the "no entry" signs need to be. Just this morning 2 cars have driven down the road incorrectly and yesterday an huge skip lorry drove down the road the wrong way. Drivers that are aware that the road is no entry, drive down it at great speed (I think to try to avoid traffic driving up it as quickly as possible). This is just so dangerous and although I am very grateful for the white arrow, it hasn't really addressed the issue as the drivers have already driven over it by the time the realise the road is one way.

  • Traffic Management Team will carry out site visit when next in the area.

    Suggestion to customer that any instances of dangerous driving (i.e. knowingly going the wrong way/speeding/etc.) to be reported to police on the non emergency number, 101. Unfortunately road markings/signage doesn't always prevent this.

    State changed to: No further action
