On the junction of Dean Stree car park with Dean Street and near the zebra crossing. crossing.

Reported via desktop in the Road lines / road markings category anonymously at 15:46, Tuesday 2 April 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5796706.

On three occasions I have used this zebra crossing to cross the road and nearly been run over. In all occasions the junction into and out of the carpark has been blocked by lines of cars in the road (Dean Street.) This has backed up because traffic is not moving on the nearby roundabout and there are no road markings to stop cars blocking the car park entrance. The car drivers are pre occupied with moving away from the entrance to allow cars into or out of the car park to notice pedestrians on the crossing. A resolution would be to add a marked area at the road and car park entrance to stop cars blocking access. This is happening more often with the amount of traffic going into Marlow or out of Marlow on the main roads.

Updates

  • This has been passed to the Highway Officer to investigate, they will carry out an inspection within the next 10 working days.

    All our roads are subject to safety inspections, and this includes identifying any markings that are badly damaged or degraded so we may already be aware of this issue and have raised a job to have them refreshed if this is the case we will update you that it is a duplicate job/enquiry.

    If we were not aware of this issue, we will update you on what action will be taken, this may include adding the road markings to a package of works to be carried out at a later date.

    Please note, the ambient temperature drops, and the air becomes much more humid during the winter months and materials won’t bond with the surface when it’s wet, defeating the purpose of applying them at all. Adding markings to a wet surface will essentially mean they become diluted. The moisture present on the road and also in the air will affect the finished quality of the markings, impacting their appearance and longevity, for this reason we only refresh road markings during winter months if there is a specific safety issue.

    There may also be occasions when the issue reported will not be repaired as it has been classified as a minor defect and does not pose any risk to either the safety or the integrity of the highway, these are called minimum recording levels as specified in our Highways Safety Inspection Policy in these cases no action will be taken.
