Gangsdown hill is a notorious accident black spot with many deaths over the years. The white lines currently there are creating a significant potential hazard again. The hill is mainly three lanes with hatched zone in the middle and double white lines on the right hand down lane. Two up and one down. When going uphill from the bottom left hand curve, the hatching starts at the entry with double white lines start going to the right, the hatching goes to the left. It is a blind curve initially but fast motorist immediately pull out and assume their route is clear despite being unable to see the down lane vehicles approaching.I suggest the double white lines are extended on both lanes untill the curve straightens so visibility is increased. The zone created in the middle to the same point is made a "total no man's land" with double lines each side and a red surface.Coming down the hill lines have worn in places so people overtake going down the hill. They need replacing.Previously the council have recognised the road is dangerous particularly after deaths
