Lane markings confusing and impossible to determine

Reported via mobile in the Faded / Hard to see (NH) category anonymously at 09:36, Thursday 1 February 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5518398.

There are two sections of road where the lane markings are almost impossible to see, especially when the sun is low in the mornings. I’ve attached one video showing the area directly alongside the runway, I have a couple of others I can send (but bigger files)

I wouldn’t normally get in touch (assuming someone else will), but I’ve had two incidents myself now where cars have drifted across my lane and swerved when realising they’re following the wrong road markings. An accident is waiting to happen.

  • I’d like to thank you for bringing this issue to our attention and I apologise confusion these road markings are causing. We really appreciate the information and feedback we receive, and value the perspective you bring as someone who uses our network. I’m pleased to report that we do have plans to address this issue in the coming year. An overlay scheme will be replacing the existing concrete with tarmac to address the driving experience and the difficulty with visibility due to the glare from the sun. For further information I’ve included a link to our webpage where all of our updates can be found our-roads/ south-east/ m27-junction-5-to-7-concrete-overlay/
