Junction at Brackley Road and the A5 traffic lights in Towcester.

Reported via desktop in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 12:37, Fri 3 September 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2976747.

When you approach the traffic lights from Brackley Road and need to turn left onto the A5 the slipway just before the traffic lights has cars parked there because the yellow lines do not go right along to the end and makes it very awkward to turn left when there are a lot of cars wanting to turn left as you have to stay in the right hand lane. Also there is a bus stop there and when buses come along they cannot pull in to pick up passengers, causing a blockage. I think that this is important and that double yellow lines should be extended, this would make it easier for traffic and transport to turn left.
