Stop lines at Traffic lights/Junction in Midsomer Norton

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 13:40, Mon 24 April 2017

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 6 minutes later

Isn't it time the white lines at the traffic lights at the junction of the High Street and B3355 were renewed - they've been gradually disappearing since the early summer of 2016 and now the 'stop' line by the bus stop opposite The Island doesn't even exist any longer.

  • Witnessed multiple near misses here yesterday afternoon. A car had stopped at the lights heading towards Silver Street but was too far forward forcing traffic exiting High Street to brake/swerve in avoidance.

  • This was the original complaint I made in April about no white lines and every day I drive through Midsomer Norton I hope to see lines done but no sign of them!! I've been behind cars that have actually stopped behind a bus at the 'bus stop' picking up passengers. Can't believe these lines have still not been done since they began disappearing in the summer of 2016. I expect the excuse is they haven't got any money in the budget.

  • Lol, if only we could!! Can't understand why it takes so long to paint a white line.

  • Just to add insult to injury, I see the white lines at Church Lane & Coombers Grave roundabouts have been redone this week. They must've run out of paint before they got to the Island.

  • My experience of getting this simple job done of putting 1 straight white line where the traffic is supposed to stop when the traffic lights turn red is absolutely naff (to be polite!!) - what is the matter with these people at the council - I could do the job myself within 10 minutes with a tin of white paint from Wickes and a 'straight edge'. Oh sorry, I suppose it comes down to the budget as usual!! Never mind that the line has been non-existent for over a year now and some car drivers actually stop behind the bus at the bus stop! or stop right across the High St entrance thereby blocking the exit of the cars from there when their lights turn green. I live in hope that I'm going to see that white line done one of these days!! Silly me!!

  • Whoop whoop, I don't believe it 'till I see it!!! I havn't been down there this week but I'm going to make a special journey via Midsomer Norton tomorrow when I drop my daughter at Radstock just to see the line. If anybody from the Council is reading this, now that wasn't too difficult a job was it? and it only took just over a year to do it!!
