Extremely poor visibility in the dark

Reported via mobile in the Faded / Hard to see (NH) category anonymously at 09:06, Monday 8 January 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5411627.

The whole of the M4 section from the M5 junction right up to Swindon is of very poor visibility in the dark, there are large sections, for miles, where the cats eyes do not work, and it is extremely difficult in the dark to see the road edge and lanes. It is difficult to be specific where these sections are but it is the majority of the M4 to be honest.
