Northbound cats eyes broken

Reported via mobile in the Road markings (NH) category anonymously at 18:23, Mon 9 November 2020

Sent to National Highways 14 hours, 22 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 2379281.

Location is not exact. I travel M5northbound jct 29 - 26 and there are large stretches of motorway where the cats eyes do not work (probably around 50% has broken cats eyes). It’s dangerous and pretty scary driving in the dark when it’s raining not being able to see any lane markings. Can these please be fixed?
