  • Road markings are very badly worn. My wife and I are frequently being faced by cars coming from the B576 overshooting/not observing the Give Way junction as we progress from High Street onto Station Road. The junction is difficult to cross for pedestrians and the pavements are narrow either side of station road at this point (walled either side). I am concerened that not only do vehicles pose a danger to other vehicles but cyclists and pedestrians that have little option to escape an out of control vehicle in the event.

  • I’ve had a few near misses because non locals think they have right of way , when they don’t. Please reinstate the road markings.
