Road markings unclear

Reported via desktop in the Faded / Hard to see (NH) category anonymously at 12:17, Thu 6 July 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4756626.

As you move away from the traffic lights there are two lanes that send you down the A38 and two lanes that feed around to the A5 towards Tamworth and further around to Shenstone and the A38 in opposite direction. Cars from the first of the two lanes for the A5 which should bring you around in the left lane keep moving across to the right and into the second lane which should bring you around in the middle lane for the next traffic light, quite often with very near misses. The land marking need to be more visible and maybe even a solid line as it seems to confuse many drivers.

  • Thank you for making your report. We have asked our inspection team to attend this location and assess the issue. If any work is needed, they will arrange for this to happen. Should no immediate work be required we will continue to monitor this during our regular inspections.

    Although we always aim to complete repairs as quickly as possible, timescales do vary as we try to minimise disruption to customers by combining activities into single closures and always ensuring the safety of our people.
