Reported via desktop in the Faded / Hard to see (NH) category anonymously at 10:33, Sat 29 July 2023

So when you come to this sliproad on the A1 there so much unused road which could be converted and make the sliproad open further up its just pointless having all these chevrons here so remove them and move the slip road closer to the kerb so there no used areas, so there will be loads of space now when you do that so make the other chevon's what sliproad have. remove the lane joining on so you can widening the bridge so this sliproad would have to merge onto the other lanes going over the bridge,
