Road markings faded

Reported via desktop anonymously at 10:19, Friday 17 March 2023

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later

Cars are driven too fast in this area. Drivers do not use their indicators and the 20mph is not respected. The lack of road markings is just adding yet another excuse for dangerous driving.

  • Thank you for contacting Hackney Council and for bringing the faded markings at Spring Hil to our attention.

    We will send our officers to conduct an on site investigation and if an intervention is required we will include your requests into our existing work programme for the road marking relining.

    Please note that the Council receives a number of these requests throughout the borough. As a result my officers will group the requests in batches and prioritise the relining works accordingly. I am therefore unable to give you a precise timescale of when the remarking will take place.

    Hackney Council has an on-going commitment to improve the street environment of the borough and the Mayor has invested significant sums in making traffic management improvements across Hackney. This has led to major improvements in the condition of our street lighting, roads, and footways, and these, and other measures, continue to provide substantial improvements for the benefit of residents and visitors alike. As part of this commitment, we are continually seeking ways to improve road safety across the borough.

    It is the Council’s view that the majority of motorists respect Hackney’s 20mph limits, but where there are continuing problems with speeding, the council and police will look at what further enforcement is needed. I must stress that the vast majority of motorists are law-abiding people and that, as with many other road traffic offences, it is the actions of an inconsiderate few that cause offence (and possibly harm) to other road users.

    Finally, may I suggest that you and other concerned residents take part in the Community Roadwatch initiative which has been promoted by Transport for London. Community Roadwatch is looking for volunteers to join the initiative and work with the Safer Transport Police Team in Hackney. Anyone, individual or group who would like to take part in Community Roadwatch, or suggest a residential area where there are concerns around speeding, such as Spring Hill, should contact or visit Roadwatch.
