Missing/confusing road markings at pedestrian crossing, side of Brighton station

Location: Pelican crossing on Terminus Road (top of Trafalgar Street), western pedestrian exit from Brighton Station by M&S.


Please pass this report on to the department responsible for road markings (traffic, not parking).

The traffic lights at this pelican crossing were replaced within the last 12 months. The road markings however are all wrong: missing or duplicated in parts and very confusing for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians alike. There are numerous solid lines across the the road which make it unclear where vehicles need to stop when the lights are on red.

Heading north up the hill, there are two solid "stop here" lines. Coming down the hill from Seven Dials (which vehicles travel down at speed), the solid "stop here" line is missing. There is even a solid white line across half of the road within the dotted pedestrian area.

Given the very large volume of road and pedestrian traffic at this location, the road markings really need replacing urgently to be completely clear and unambiguous. Currently they are all over the place, and would likely be a contributing factor to any accident at this location.

Many thanks for looking into this matter. Yours faithfully,
