Severely faded symbols demarcating areas for pedestrians and cyclists

Along the north side of Hitchcock Way and Station Road there is a solid white line demarcating widths of the pavement reserved variously for pedestrians and cyclists. Occasionally - seemingly at intersections with pedestrian crossings - there are white bicycle symbols painted on the pavement within the part reserved for cyclists; these symbols are very faded. This issue, combined with the tendency of the occasional blue signposts at the northern edge of the pavement (again showing which parts of the pavement are reserved for which purposes) to fade into the scrub vegetation, makes it markedly less than obvious which part of the pavement to use. The white symbols need to be repainted, preferably at more frequent intervals along the pavement.
