Poor signage and road markings leading to lane cutting on roundabout and many near misses.

Reported via desktop in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 13:29, Sunday 20 February 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

The new sign post does not represent a left turn only for the left lane onto the A5. Road markings are also misleading as the show a straight arrow several times followed by one single left only arrow just at the entrance to the roundabout. Many vehicles are continuing straight on to the Hinckley exit of the roundabout and cutting up traffic. The middle lane leading to the roundabout can also turn left so if someone were to do this correctly and someone in the left lane is confused by the signs, there will be collisions. It happens almost every time I use the roundabout which is frequently. The problem has existed since the new layout and signs were introduced approx 1 year ago. Google earth shows the confusing road markings and signage. The sign should show a left arrow for the left lane onto the A5 (it doesn’t), the middle lane should show an ahead and left arrow (it doesn’t) and the left lane road markings should show a left only arrow.

  • Thank you for your report concerning poor signage . Currently this isn’t causing any safety concerns and work isn’t required. An inspector checked the signs and road markings and feels the road markings and signs clearly state that lanes one and two can be used for the A5 northbound, and lane one is the designated lane for the A5 northbound,

    We will continue to monitor this and will arrange any work if the situation changes.
