Drivers continuing to drive the wrong way.

Reported via desktop in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 09:42, Wednesday 21 April 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2683047.

We are a business on the roundabout at Duck Street/Wellingborough Road/Church Street and we see on a regular basis a number of vehicles that drive the wrong way down a one way street. Also, In drivers using the left hand lane to turn right into the car park, but dont realise it is one way and so therefore cut in front of the right hand lane traffic. There are more road signs and markings required in this area. Whether it is writing one way, or arrows highlighting the direction of traffic and being one way. There are turnings out of two/three car parks and the turning from Fitzwilliam Street that i would say are the main areas of confusion for drivers and there are no road markings and very few signs.
