No road markings on newly surfaced road

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The road resurfacing was completed by November 2nd and is now very good. However there are no white lines or traffic warnings about the need to look out for pedestrians (since there is no footpath). Visibility for drivers is very poor if walkers are not wearing bright clothing, and some drivers who go at 30-80mph along the new race track will have no hope of seeing a walker before it's too late. In fog it will be difficult for any driver to even see where the road sides are. Are you going to paint the lines soon? This is urgent.

  • I would like to add to my report that the verges beside the newly surfaced road are composed of loose soil which washes onto the road in the rain. A driver was seen last week to swerve out of control on the muddy surface when trying to stop for a pedestrian when facing an oncoming vehicle. It would be advisable to have a central dotted line down the centre of the road as a minimum to improve driving safety. White lines at the sides would soon be covered in mud under present conditions.
