The one at Regent St will be first. The first one is marked as a zebra crossing, the second one looks like a crossing but isn’t marked as one.  Confusion between vehicles and pedestrians isn’t good. 
 

 

 

I seem to have buggered up quoting. 

They will be being dug up soon anyway as both are subsiding and breaking up.

You also have red concrete being used as a pedestrian safety refuge on Loch/Harris promenade and to indicate danger on Central /Queens promenade

They did say they were monitoring  it to be fair and it was done away with quite quickly . I think this is such a glaring issue and clearly doesnt meet road traffic regs that they will be brave to ignore it if brought to there attention. 

And then they sort of painted over it, but now you can’t tell what the actual road markings are.

Likewise the new layout at the top of Royal Avenue.  Now just one lane with no right turn heading towards halftime, but when heading that way in the sun you can’t actually tell they have removed the markings, so you regularly see people sitting in the old right turn lane that isn’t actually there anymore with traffic heading into Onchan heading straight for them

It’s two different junctions but I can’t see the Sefton one being and better than Broadway at this rate

Yes I know its different junctions but from memory the original plans showed the two 'roundabouts ' looking the same.  And I totally agree its not. This will have to be redone and quickly at the bottom of broadway as its not legal i'd say . Never mind the standard of work.

Was talking to 3 coppers standing looking at this artwork today. When I asked them about the legality of the road markings under the Road Traffic Act their response was ‘ nothing to do with us, they have no legal standing whatsoever’

I think we probably need to start thinking about this as art. 

A bit like Tracy Emin's "Unmade Bed"...
