Speeding,bad road signage, faded signs. Broken railings

Reported via mobile in the Faded road markings category anonymously at 17:08, Thursday 5 August 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2917118.

I have lived on Marlborough buildings for many years and it is a rat run for the town. People speed at extremes of 50 mph. Its a 20mph but no repeater signs, no road markings, no gate to crescent children often run out. Gaps in railings so kids can escape onto road. No zebra crossing at bottom where hundreds of tourists cross every day . Its a highly populated residential area. Its the biggest tourist attraction in Bath. We hear cars whizzing up and down way over the speed limit. Its inevitable a child or adult will be hit by a car and possibly a fatality. Banes need to address the problem. We have applied for a community speed watch . Please add speed humps, road signs and repeaters, road markings and a zebra crossing. I watched a toddler run out of the road the other day. Please address the issue asap before someone dies. Thank you
