SIGN NEEDED Dangerous lack of lane clarity and road markings

Reported via desktop in the Road markings and lining category anonymously at 13:43, Wednesday 15 May 2024

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 406749.

This Sainsbury's roundabout is a hotspot for near misses. Every other time I drive around here I am cut off and forced to brake and use the horn to avoid a collision and in this instance, it is not the fault of the drivers, but the very road itself - the lack of signage and road markings.

Upon entering there are NO clear signs indicating which lane to be in except for very faded arrows which provide no insight whatsoever.

To rectify this issue and to make it safer for all, there should be a large GET IN LANE sign on approach with a diagram of what lanes go where. As well as a repaint of the on-road arrows and the lane boundaries to make it easy for drivers to follow their lane.

I hope by providing this report some action will finally take place as this has been an issue for years now and even though surfacing works were carried out nearby, nothing was done to rectify this ongoing issue.

As road users, we shouldn't be having to guess what lane to be in - it should be clearly marked.
