The intersection slip lane has no markings as you turn right off the A6003 into Corby. No one knows where you should go as you exit across the southbound carriageway OR turning right coming out of the Town towards Uppingham and crossing the same carriageway

If the inspector was on foot then lines may be evident, BUT as a driver looking through a clean windscreen even, does not show any visible lines to mark road positioning for vehicles. This junction also is used for U turns for vehicles going back towards Kettering so they may enter the industrial estate a few hundred metres previous to the junction. In wet conditions, any lines become even less visible too.
