No road markings on Montrose Street between Cochrane and Ingram

Reported via mobile in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 21:55, Tue 29 August 2023

Sent to Glasgow City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4939199.

This concerns the southernmost section of Montrose Street, between Cochrane Street and Ingram Street, in Glasgow City Centre. During the World Cycling Championships this area was closed to traffic to house support vehicles.

A traffic island was removed and the section of the street was fully resurfaced (without replacing road markings) in the days leading up to the events. As I write this on Tuesday 29th August, the Championship concluded more than 2 weeks ago, and neither the island nor the markings have been replaced yet. As a resident of the street, I haven't received any notice of future works that would indicate that this might happen soon.

Firstly, this has caused issues with parking, as there are currently no parking bays or double/single yellow lines, cars are parked dangerously close to junctions and often blocking service access points.

More concerningly, I witnessed two cars on separate occasions driving on the wrong side of the road (in both directions) this evening alone. I can only assume these drivers thought the road was one-way because, without road markings, the traffic flow on this section of road is not intuitive, and most other streets in the area are one-way.

This is a very busy section of road, so I believe a serious accident is inevitable unless this can be resolved quickly.
