Temporary lanes are too narrow

Reported via desktop in the Faded / Hard to see (NH) category anonymously at 15:11, Thursday 4 April 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5807235.

The temporary lakes that have been put in between junctions 5 and 7, both East and Westbound are too narrow. Lorry’s cannot stay within the new lanes and this busy stretch of motorway has become a death trap. Someone has incorrectly measured the lanes. They were not this narrow during the smart motorway repairs. Even the local newspaper has raised this as “risk of fatalities” with lots of local people reporting near misses already. Please urgently send someone out to make the temporary lanes wider or you will cause accidents and be responsible for deaths. Please read the Facebook comments on the daily echo post about this matter.
