Dangerous turning point

Reported via desktop in the Structures (eg bridges, fencing, noise barriers) category anonymously at 05:30, Sunday 3 October 2021

Sent to National Highways 3 days, 8 hours, 23 minutes later

I very narrowly avoided a high-speed (70mph) - potentially exttremely dangerous - collision here involving multiple cars, travelling eastbound. There is no junction westbound, but a car in the right-hand overtaking lane decided to use a gap in the dual carriageway to brake in order to do an unexpected U-turn. The gap is presumably to allow cars from Landmere Lane to cross over the A52, to head east. There are no signs that I noticed to warn of this hazard and a No U-Turns might even be appropriate.
