Worn away road markings on cross-over between carriage-ways.

The road markings at this carriage cross-over have become so faint as to be invisible. This has resulted, on numerous occasions, in vehicles travelling SW (towards Towcester) and turning right or making a U-turn at this junction going into the wrong lane. This is happening at an increasing frequency, and whilst clear markings will not prevent all occasions of this they will certainly help. It is most alarming to be about to drive from St John's Road across the A43 to be faced by a vehicle suddenly turning across the junction from the NE into your lane. As a parish councillor this issue has been referred to me by other residents of Tiffield.

This problem has been reported previously a number of times.
