Faded road markings

Reported via Android in the Road markings (NH) category anonymously at 20:13, Sun 11 June 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4658350.

On the A38 slip road at the Alfreton Watchorn exit, the road markings have faded. Drivers are making inconsistent lane choices to turn left into Alfreton .Many drivers choose the left lane as they are turning left off the roundabout. However, many drivers use the right lane to turn left - this is because soon after turning left there is another junction with two lanes: a choice of turn left or straight on. Better road markings and signage would help to prevent an accident waiting to happen. I use this junction most days and frequently see inconsistent lane choices. If a driver in the left lane were to go straight on (usually OK at roundabouts) at the same time as a driver in the right lane turned left (because they are going straight on at the next junction) there would be a collision.
