Almost non existent No Entry Road Markings

Reported in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 07:32, Thursday 18 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2161147.

There is an increase in the number of Motorists & Cyclists who ignore the fact that Charlton way is a one way street. This is not helped by the fact that the Road Markings are virtually non extent. It has been this way for a long time & I feel that this should have been detected by scheduled road inspections. It clearly has not been. Can we please learn when this will be rectified?

  • I was surprised to learn that it would take up to 6 months to rectify. I was also surprised that the Council's routine inspections had not already identified the problem & already had a rectification plan in place

  • I would also like to raise concerns about this one way street. I regularly walk up Charlton Way o my allotment. On more than a few occasions I've nearly been hit from behind by cyclists going the wrong way. I've also received abuse from them telling me they're within their rights. 6 months is not good enough especially as children use this street to walk to school.

  • This is yet another instance in which Council's road inspections should have identified this problem early & had a rectification plan in place to avoid road markings becoming almost non existent & thus useless. Repairs within 6 months is not a satisfactory response in these circumstances Surely Fix My Street was not established in order that the General Public should become a substitute for the Highways Department conducting their legal responsibilities
