The Give Way white lines on Orchard Gardens at the junction with Silver Lane have completely eroded on this Sharp and dangerous bend. I recently drove along Silver Lane in a Southerly direction and as I approached this junction with Orchard Gardens a car drove straight out from there failing to give way to me because, I assume, they believed they had right of way. Because of the way Silver Lane bends sharply at right angles here, without the give way lines at the end of Orchard Gardens those travelling along Orchard Gardens believe they are on the main road and that Silver Lane is a turning off. This is highly dangerous.
