Mini-roundabout markings worn to point of being dangerous

Reported anonymously at 08:27, Fri 12 July 2019

There is a mini-roundabout at the junction of Rishton Lane and Settle Street - however, the white paint on the carriageway (both for the roundabout itself, the arrows around it and the "give way" lines on all approaches) is incredibly worn. I believe the lack of paint is now worn to the point of being dangerous. The paintwork has been worn but understandable for around a year, but in the last couple of months has reached the point where it is not obvious that this junction is subject to roundabout priorities. There is a particular lack of clarity for traffic approaching from the North (Rishton Lane heading Southbound from Weston Street towards Lever Edge Lane), and I believe a driver making this movement would only know there was a mini-roundabout at this location if they were already familiar with the junction. This is compounded by the fact that there are very few road signs indicating the presence of a mini-roundabout at this junction. It seems only a matter of time before the lack of clear road markings at this junction are responsible for a collision, as traffic coming from Settle Street would have every right to expect Southbound traffic to stop, but a driver heading Southbound may not realise they need to. There are similar problems with the markings being worn - though less severely - at the Lever Edge Lane/Green Lane/Rishton Lane roundabout.
