Road markings not visible, road only wide enough for one vehicle to safely pass

Reported via mobile in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 09:54, Wednesday 17 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2551488.

Church Street narrows in the dip by the pond. This has always been a danger as there isn’t a “road narrows” sign. The “SLOW” road markings are badly faded. In fact the one coming into the village from the Elms is virtually non existent! I have witnessed a couple of near misses this week as there is increased traffic due to other roads in/out of Blakesley being closed with a diversion along Church Street.
