Back to all reports

Markings at junction of Kilgraston Road and Oswald Road so faint that cars often think the road is a continuation. I was nearly killed here last week as driver failed to stop at junction. There should be a STOP sign. There are several old people's homes round here and this is a dangerous crossing so needs clear white marking lines.

Getting fainter and fainter.

  • Nothing has happened. The end of street marking at the junction is so faint that it is illegible. I have stood at the corner and seen cars drive fast down Kilgraston Road and swerve right into Oswald Road without stopping at all. I am surprised there has not been an accident as cars also continue straight on along Oswald Road in addition to pedestrians including many old people trying to cross. There should be a STOP sign. Why has nothing been done about this?

  • So what is the point of reporting it as nothing has happened? The markings are obscure and cars continue to turn right without indicating.
