Directional arrows

Reported via iOS in the Road markings and lining category anonymously at 19:56, Tue 5 April 2022

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 370164.

Directional arrows needed on this new link road roundabouts. I’ve have had several near misses with people in the wrong lane, thinking they are in the correct lane. I don’t believe it’s fair that the council leave it down to the individuals drivers to decide what lane they should use correctly/incorrectly

  • Thank you for contacting us. This issue does not come under the responsibility of our Highways Area Teams, however we have forwarded this report to be reallocated to our Transportation team who can assess if directional arrows or additional signage are required on this junction / roundabout as none are currently in place.

    Many thanks,

  • Adding directional arrows to roundabout lanes can often create a situation of over confidence in terms of roundabout capacity. Without arrows, onus on driver to approach and travel across roundabouts in accordance with the Highway Code, ensuring priority given to drivers approaching from the right, and only joining the roundabout when there is space to do so.
