Cars traveling too fast as they leave M57

Reported via mobile in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 18:56, Mon 16 January 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4137739.

Many cars leaving the M57 join East lancs Road and are still traveling at 60mph as they join. Three issues. Signage on exit is weak. Road narrows, reduce speed now. People may do, but not enough. I think the speed limit on joining east lancs road is 50. It needs to be mandatory as soon as slip road is entered. Shortly after this junction there is a major junction. Some cars are committed to left had lane as they filter off left at lights. Causes contention. Joining traffic appears to have no give way obligation. Why not? The whole junction is dangerous. 1. No give way sign. 2. Speed limit often ignored, joining traffic has been at 70 mph. When busy (often) traffic that intends to turn left on ELR must commit to inside lane, blocking joining traffic. All avoidable with speed limit and give way to ELR at moment cars join whether it is possible or not. Messy and dangerous. I look forward to your feedback. Thank you.
