Poor signage and road markings

When travelling from Brampton hut services towards Spittal interchange there is no signage saying new junction layout. The junction layout has been changed so the left hand lane is left turn only towards the a1 although the signage is not clear and the white lining is very poor not giving clear indication of this I have encountered 4 near misses as I am in the middle lane to continue to march on the a141 and vehicles who are in the left lane have gone straight over nearly colliding with me. The white arrow pointing straight up in the left hand lane has been blacked out but does not make this clear at all. Possible solutions would be to burn off the arrows not required so its clearer or white lining to say left turn only. I thought I had better report this before an accident happens. I dont think people realise the junction has changed and are on auto pilot and go in the left lane to go straight over. I think someone needs to investigate please Many thanks

  • The new road markings at the interchange are an accident waiting to happen. The left hand lane has been change to left hand turn only and very few vehicles actually turn here. If you want to go into Huntingdon, you now have to use the middle and right hand line and cut over when past the left hand turn which is causing vehicles to cut each other up. Grrrrrrr
