FixMyStreet ref: 5152156.
Half of the markings for the slip road have been 'blacked out' but commuters still continue to use the slip road as normal. Junction entrance then becomes very short, encouraging near misses joining the carriage way.
Slip road needs to be widened and extended to allow for two lanes of traffic to join carriage way to support the traffic leaving Weston to commute to Bristol. Takes 40 minutes most mornings to get from Queensway to the Junction slip. Flooding is also an issue from the traffic lights, reducing the lanes to only one from the roundabout.
Thank you for making your report. We've asked our inspection team to attend this location and assess the issues. If any work is needed, they'll arrange for this to happen. Should no immediate work be required we'll 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.
