Double Broken 'Give Way' Markings on both ends of short feeder road.

Reported via desktop in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 11:58, Sun 4 October 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The short link road between the B4000 and the Townsend Road has 'Give Way' broken lines across the width of both ends. This is misleading as it should mean 'No Entry' except in this case it is No Entry at both ends, but with out No Entry signs. There are remains of a 'normal' junction markings i.e. Give Way triangle and single broken lines for traffic turning in to the road. I have checked with a ROSPA examiner and it just seems to be a mistake. Thanks.

  • We have carried out a site visit and we are a little confused with the “No Entry” element of the enquiry. We have looked through the information in the scheme folders relating to Townsend Road and there is no evidence (drawings) of works described within the enquiry. Furthermore, a traffic regulation order would have been required to implement a 'No Entry' restriction, there is no information within the scheme folder that this was carried out as part of the Section 278 works.

    Kind regards
