  • The markings distinguishing cycle lanes and the pedestrian areas at this junction are confusing and potentially dangerous.

    On the corner between The Slade and Old Road moving in the direction of Windmill road there is no clear marking on where the cycle path ends and there is not sufficient room to accommodate pedestrians and bicycles.

    On the opposite corner between Old Road and The Slade again there is no distinction between the cycle lane and the pedestrian pathway. It is also a blind corner. The other evening a cycle bumped into me at quite a speed as it turned from The Slade into Windmill Road while I was walking home.

    The problem is that there is no clear indication of where the bicycle lane ends with arrows at both junction having ambiguous arrows pointing both ahead and indicating that cyclists should rejoin the road at these junctions.

    I fear that these confusing signs could lead to injury at some point.

  • There is a chance that the lights on Old Road and the top of Churchill Drive are out of sync. At peak times and beyond there can be several cycles of lights before vehicles are able to turn left off The Slade to head towards the Churchill. Please Investigate.

  • Reports concerning Traffic Signals should be reported under the appropriate Traffic lights category to ensure they are automatically sent to the right Council.

    Although we will forward this to the correct authority there is no guarantee that they will be able to update the report as they may not have access to this part of FMS

    State changed to: No further action
