Signs and road markings not the same

Reported via desktop in the Road markings category anonymously at 10:10, Friday 2 July 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

Coming from MK towards Aylesbury road markings change on the roundabout, people from lane 3 are turning right, meaning if you follow signs and want to go to petrol station you cannot do so without changing lanes, this has been the case for years. 2 middle lanes should be market on the roundabout as ONLY A5 as per sign before roundabout.

  • Thank you for your observations regarding road markings on the southbound A5 at the entrance to Kelly‚Äôs Kitchen Roundabout.

    We do not have any plans to change the road markings or signs at the roundabout.

    The road markings at the roundabout were renewed last year and both the signage and the markings are correct, and clearly show drivers which lanes to be in. The markings on the entrance to the roundabout show Lane 1 to Bedford, Lane 2 & 3 for the A5 and Lane 4 for A4146. The markings should not cause a conflict if drivers follow the lanes and advice set out in the Highway Code.

    Drivers will sometimes have to change lanes while on, or when leaving, roundabouts and any safety concerns relating to the manoeuvres you describe appear to be because of poor driver behaviour.

    Kind Regards Highways England

  • Answer was that roundabout was recently renewed only confirms incompetence of council as renewing the sings caused the issue
