Cycle Box road marking faded

The Box reserved for cyclists at this junction directly in front of the traffic lights is badly faded, leading to vehicles using it instead of cyclists.

Also, why is there no box junction on Wick Road opposite Eastway? It's lethal and only a matter of time before there is a serious accident.

The attached photo shows the daily chaos caused by not having a box junction.

  • I've had a reply, basically saying it'll be looked into at some point and the now non existent cycle box markings will be repainted at some point as part of a maintenance program.

    I'd prefer action to a wordy email though to be honest, especially after 2 near collisions this week.

  • The cycle markings are now faded to nothing, meaning there is now a pointless raised platform for cars. Nothing at all has happened with this.
