As per 1000882 which was closed without resolution

Reported via mobile in the Road signage category anonymously at 16:57, Friday 12 January 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5435420.

As per all the notes on 1000882 I’ve been adding to since 2017, case was closed in 2021 despite no action by highways or the council or any explanation as to why they refuse to do these works. At one point it was claimed that new signage had been signed off however years later it’s not been put up. Middle lane coming off the m32 is straight to Frenchay however as there is no clear sign, nor any guidelines for the lanes, drivers continue to crash into each other or cause near crashes at turning left from the middle lane on a daily basis.

  • A car has just almost crashed into the side of me 15:25pm at this junction. Three cars used the straight only middle lane to cut across us which also caused cars infront of me that were proceeding correctly to swerve into the lane towards Tesco. The cars that were proceeding correctly, once forced out of the lane by cars cutting up, are then stuck blocking the lane to Tesco with indicators on. This is a very simple fix, the sign was signed off years ago but was never installed, the ramp was out of use for weeks after a fire and the work could have been done then. This website and Bristol council are useless and negligent

  • In support of the original post, the lane markings were altered when the slip road was resurfaced a few years ago shortly after the fire damage was repaired. The markings now show left only from the left lane, straight ahead from the other two lanes. Previously the left lane was for straight ahead and left. The left lane is now marked as retail park, so there is no clear indication of which lane to use for Muller Road. There is no associated lane destination sign to clarify what lane should be used. Many drivers have now taken to using the middle lane to turn left to Muller Road. This always used to happen when there was a long queue into Tesco, Ikea etc. but it now seems to happen at all times of day, even if the left hand lane is empty. The sign needs to be replaced as a matter of urgency - the posts are still there I think.

  • We are working with National Highways for the re-signing and relining of the roundabout, however this process has taken some time. We hope to have the work completed by the end of the 2024/25 financial year.

  • This was you email to me 12/03/2019 so to say ‘some time’ is an understatement Dear Madam, Thank you for your comments on the road markings and signage at junction 2 of the M32. The roundabout’s road marking layout was redesigned at the behest of the local neighbourhood partnership, to make it easier for drivers to navigate their way through however we are experiencing some delays in completing the lining (which includes lane guide markings)and sorting out the signage. This is due to fact we require approval and co-operation from Highways England who are responsible for the lining and signage on the M32 slip roads. We can only apologise about any confusion caused and urge you to approach the roundabout with a degree caution until these issues with signage have been sorted out. Regards,
