Entrance of The Retreat, Dunstable LU5 4PZ

Reported via desktop in the Road markings and lining category anonymously at 09:47, Tue 24 August 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 360811.

This is a dead end road. At the entrance of the road, only one side of the road has a sign with the street name. The other side does not. Depending on from which side you come from to turn into the road, I have noticed that if cars come from the side where the sign is not there, cars often break rapidly as they miss the turning, as it is a very tiny road with just a one way system. As such, I would kindly request that the Council arrange for a sign with the road name to be placed on the other side as well, in order to avoid an accident happening. As it is a dead end road, there are often kids playing outside on the road with their bicycles, pets etc. and I am concerned that a car will turn too quickly as they would have missed the turning without seeing the road sign name.
