Illegal use of right turn lane to enter BP Petrol Station from South

Reported in the Roads/highways category by Dave Crane at 15:20, Wed 6 June 2012

Newnham Avenue, Bedford

Southbound Cars making a legal right turn using the right turn lane into Rosamund Road, near the White Horse Pub, are often confronted HEAD ON by Northbound cars making an ILLEGAL right turn into the BP Petrol Station - they are driving AGAINST the direction arrows in the lane.

ACTION NEEDS TO BE TAKEN URGENTLY - many near head-on collisions have been witnessed at least twice a day by myself - it's on my journey to and from work, plus other times of day.

Bedford Borough Council needs to deal with this URGENTLY before someone is KILLED!

I first reported this matter via this website in OCTOBER 2011 - so far NO ACTION has been taken!

  • Still open, via questionnaire, 18:26, Wed 4 July 2012

  • not fixed - and no apparent action either.

    this, at the very least, needs a "No Right Turn" sign for traffic heading North towards Goldington Road junction, at best a traffic island and raised concrete kerbs to make it difficult to illegal right turns
