Lack of lane markings

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 4 minutes later

When heading along Coton Road towards town there are 3 lanes at the end of the road. In accordance with standard road use, this would mean the left lane for turning left, the middle lane for straight on and the right lane for turning right. There is often a queue in the right lane and in order for people to beat the queue, road users are using the middle lane to turn right. I have seen so many near misses and confused drivers which causes chaos at busy times. I have even seen a bus driving around the outside to avoid the queue. As there is no space for 2 lanes to merge on Vicarage Street it seems that this was not the intention. There are lane markings to other exits onto this roundabout therefore it would seem sensible to have markings on this exit also.

I would be grateful if this could be looked into as I do know it does cause problems every day.

Many thanks

  • My concerns are the same as those above. No Lane markings approaching the roundabout from the Coton arches towards the town centre. A current Facebook post is highlighting the mass confusion and divided opinion about what each lane is used for. Why wait for accident, or a road rage incident to occur, when there is a simple inexpensive solution!
