Non existence of road markings or a traffic island.

Reported in the Road markings faded/missing category anonymously at 12:06, Wed 13 November 2019

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 4 minutes later. Council ref: 358921.

Due to the non existence of road markings or a traffic island at the junctions of Swanholme Close and Pioneer Way, traffic held up in the increasing traffic jams are using the centre of the road to access Pioneer Way using great speed. Currently there have been several minor accidents with vehicles egressing Swanholme Close but this will lead to a death or serious injury if this is not rectified as soon as possible. It is a known problem that has increased over many years and is being ignored. Swanholme Close is the only junction without a traffic island along Doddington Road and this would stop or at least protect traffic and pedestrians.

  • My understanding is that this has already been investigated and reported by local traffic meeting that included residents and police representatives. My concern is that unless an island is established where Swanholme joins Doddington Road there will be a death or serious injury involving traffic or a pedestrian. Local HGVs are using the centre area to pass stationary traffic regardless of vehicles exiting Swanholme. Traffic has been met head on when turning right into Swanholme. Current road markings are so faint there are no solid white lines and Keep Clear is also ignored.

  • Thank you for your email received 20.04.2021. Unfortunately, the report states that the work is completed. This is not the case and is therefore an incorrect statement. The only work that has been completed is to repaint the 'Keep Clear' access point into Swanholme Close. There has been no updating of the chevron or road markings along the approach on Doddington Road. Nor has there been a traffic island to improve safety to both vehicle and pedestrian users as outlined previously. There continues to be an increase of HGV traffic using the centre chevroned area to access Pioneer Way when traffic is backed up. I repeat, that due to no action being taken by the Council on this point, despite knowing that there is an increase of traffic on Doddington Road, I feel there will be a serious accident involving death or serious injury. Please respond

  • I am concerned that this is yet another delay tactic by the council as this problem has supposedly been investigated several times and has also been reported by the local traffic group. Instead of meaningless comments which adds to the delay I would appreciate it if some indication of when the traffic island will be erected is given. Since moving here we have seen a huge increase in traffic due to planning permission for both private dwellings and commercial units with little improvement to Doddington Road to support the additional traffic despite the income the council receives from these properties.
