Exit slip road poorly lit

Reported via mobile in the Not working (NH) category anonymously at 00:48, Tuesday 30 April 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5914282.

A couple of years ago Watchorn roundabout had three of the four slip roads for the A38 upgraded with good LED lighting and improved reflective studs. However when travelling south on the A38 the off sliproad onto Watchorn roundabout never had the new lights fitted and it remains poorly lit, which is a hazard as it's difficult to see the sliproad clearly. I can only presume that whover was in charge of the upgrade thought not to light it because of the nearby hotel or they ran out of money? Can this sliproad have new lighting and also have the reflective studs replaced as a lot don't work now. Thanks
