High crash risk due to lack of road markings

Reported via desktop in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 08:34, Thursday 21 July 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3693385.

There is a VERY high risk of crashes occurring at the junction of Tilbury Road, Ravensthorpe Road and Main Street. There has already been umpteen near misses as the Give Way markings and lines have virtually worn down to nothing, the closest I have experienced is a van being within 2 feet of my car. Any crash at this T junction could have life changing injuries as it would be a vehicle travelling along Tilbury Rd at 30mph slamming into the driver or rear passengers door

  • I have witnessed numerous near misses this morning (10/10/22) caused by traffic approaching from Tilbury Rd driving straight through the junction with Ravensthorpe Rd and Main Street without slowing down. The road markings are very badly worn and traffic is driving West to East into low bright sunlight, It is only a matter of time before a very serious accident occurs at this junction.

  • Still unresolved - I witness numerous vehicles driving through this junction every day and have just witnessed yet another near miss. Are you waiting for someone to be killed before taking any action?? The responsibility will be entirely yours for ignoring the repeated reports of this hazard you have been given.
