Invisible markings don’t hold busses back

Reported in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 17:28, Thursday 2 May 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1619562.

I’m counting near misses here. I’ve personally had 2 really serious misses where busses do not know who has right of way, and they take it for themselves. Markings have been so faded / missing for so long now, memory of them is also fading for drivers. Please repaint before there is an accident. Drapery joins Bridge St/Mercer’s Row.

  • It is now October, and the original report was made in May. The situation has worsened as drivers have no idea of the priority. You gave a 6 month window for repainting. Please confirm when this is scheduled, since your window is closing.
