The road markings on the left hand side of the roundabout here are VERY worn to the point where they're almost invisible. This is causing lots of dangerous near misses because despite the southbound exit slip road being very well signposted and marked (there are 10 warnings to stay in the right lane if you are taking the Eccleshall Road exit into Stafford), the actual markings on the roundabout are so worn out that people keep using the left lane, to go straight. As a result of this, I have experienced and witnessed close calls between people driving 'as you would expect to' on the roundabout layout, versus how it's signposted to do so.
This is a serious safety issue and needs to be resolved ASAP.
We have raised this with our inspectors to be investigated at the first possible opportunity.
Our inspector will review this to determine whether remedial work is required to make the area safe for the travelling public.
