Road markings almost completely worn out

Reported via desktop in the Faded road markings category by Cllr. Rob Schofield M.Sc. MIET at 20:44, Thu 23 September 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3021527.

The yellow, cross-hatched entry restriction box on the road surface coming downhill to toll is almost completely erased (more than 90%). As a result, tourist drivers are entering the boxed area unknowingly and obstructing the road at the narrowest point (instead of waiting until the exit on the opposite side is clear, as per highway code). Given the heavy traffic at this crossing at the moment, this is causing a serious obstruction problem, with pedestrians being put at risk by vehicles mounting the kerbs to get past. A serious, growing problem.
