With reference to previous enquiries, FixMyStreet ref: 4660884. Council ref: ENQ23964979 and FixMyStreet ref: 4603211 Council ref: ENQ23963366 Nothing seems to have happened - an advised lead time of 28 days was claimed May 30. Appreciate recent consultation re cameras to spot drivers taking the illegal; left turn, but prevention and protection is better for vulnerable road users.
Would appreciate an update, thanks.

These wands on the orca appear to have been missing since May. I was standing nearby on Saturday and realise that the remaining orca wedge is invisible to many people walking and cycling when there are a lot of cars around and there is a good chance someone on a bike or on foot will hit it, stumble or fall over or off a bike. This is a hazard which needs fixing soon, please. Especially with more dark mornings and evenings coming when it will become invisible being black.

Thank you for the feedback. Some wand orcas at The Plain junction were replaced in mid-October, which should improve the situation.
