Road writing incorrectly directs to TURN LEFT

Sent to Bristol City Council 4 minutes later

Since the new road layout for the south Bristol ring road and Anton Bantock Way, just after LIDL's exit moving towards Hengrove Way, the on-the-road writing tells you to TURN LEFT. This is totally misleading. Turning left takes you into a workshop area and business park, whereas drivers simply need to follow the road ahead to stay on Whitchurch Road, and onward to Hengrove Way. If it needs to say anything, it should say KEEP LEFT, to stop traffic moving into the oncoming lane, but certainly not state TURN LEFT. This junction is poorly designed, and confusing enough without this incorrect road marking.

Kind regards, J Goulding

  • Road signage and text on road still tells drivers toTURN LEFT at junction, rather than KEEP LEFT, which means people are turning left into an industrial place rather than following the main road as intended.
