Centre line rubbed away

Reported via desktop in the Road lines / road markings category anonymously at 11:28, Thursday 4 February 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The central lane lining on the B474 Penn Road is almost totally absent between jcts with Forty Green Road and Curzon Avenue all apart from <1m sections that been repainted by contractors when they've filled in a trench. This reveals how awful the lining on this curving 40mph road is.

Centre lining on Penn Road north of Forty Green Road, towards Penn, was redone in 2020, but oddly was not on the stretch towards Beaconsfield.

The stretch is particularly dangerous without centre lining, as it curves around quite a bit, and a number of street lamps are either dead or are hidden wihtin the canopies of mature trees.

Thanks for fixing!
