  • The situation continues as do the near misses when disorientated drivers suddenly switch 'lanes.' The road markings and white guidance lines are all but invisible at this 'confusing' interchange traffic island - Dunton Island. It is used by large volumes of HGVs including fuel tankers from the Kingsbury Depot which add to the potential danger of a serious accident. Those white lines and direction names on the carriageways do matter. Please give this priority for action. Reported March and now again in late May.

  • We nearly had a collision with 8 car when towing our caravan , due to unclear road markings which are faded and covered in dirt . It's about time this situation was addressed as this has been like this for some time.

  • Lines and markings on the Dunton Island are worn out, This is still a problem and extremely dangerous at a very very busy Island, it needs sorting people are going to be killed, cars of crossing lanes as they don't know where the markings are.

  • Totally aree, we can just about get around the island without a scrape as we know the area but are constantly having to keep an eye out for other drivers who don't and struggle due to the complete lack of lane markings. I can see see that this was acknowledged by the highways department back in March last year and the promised works have still not been done over a year later- so poor.

  • Traffic lights now regularly going out of sync totally gridlocking the surrounding area

  • Basically all the traffic lights are not working on the junction and haven’t been for past month now! Each week I have had a near miss at least once on this junction from some unobservant driver pulling out on me forcing me to either emergency stop or take evasive actions! This is completely unacceptable
