Junction needs yellow box repainting and cameras installing

The junction between Cassland Rd and Terrace Rd has become impassable for wheelchair users, people pushing prams/buggies, and very, very difficult for pedestrians between the hours of 2pm and 6.30pm. The yellow box markings are worn, and drivers do not see them, or choose to ignore them, Vehicles tend not to stop at the white lines and push forward towards, and often into, the yellow box. The pedestrian crossings are then blocked, meaning that people on foot are forced to weave in and out of the vehicles which are blocking the crossing. One one occasion, when crossing on foot at this junction, I had to jump out of the way of a reversing vehicle which had driven into the yellow box before the lights changed. I feel it is only a matter of time before a pedestrian is seriously injured at this junction. Perhaps the repainting of the yellow lines will make the junction clearer to drivers, and the installation of "yellow box" cameras would encourage drivers to stay back and allow pedestrians to cross in safety.
