General road marking and stud issues problem

Reported via Open311 in the General road marking and stud issues category by Gloucestershire County Council at 14:56, Wednesday 3 April 2024

FixMyStreet ref: 5801764.

Highways had painted etched markings in a ‘D’ shape, and dotted lines at each of the houses in our ‘row’ along the edge of the road (- the road rises here onto the Common. ) The white markings denoted the presence of each house, and also the entrance to each drive. These have completely eroded. The remains of the top- of-drive dotted line disappeared under the new tarmac.

This means that drivers (many exceeding the 30 speed limit by the time they’ve accelerated up the road) are unaware that there is a an entrance to a drive. We, and our neighbours have to reverse onto the road; the manoeuvre is dangerous as it is, but more so without the road markings which at least serve as warning, for drivers to take care (even if ignored!)

Please would you re-paint the warning hatched lines by our drive, in addition to the line at the verge.
A nice big ’30’ or ’SLOW’ would be excellent, too.
