CATG Action / Recommendation

Issue

The Issue is at the Dunstable crossroads which is a four way junction leading to Firsdown Pitton Winterslow and the A30. There has been several reported accidents at this crossroad with several near-miss events not being reported.The main road Firsdown - Winterslow is free flowing with cars not slowing down when approaching the crossroads. The cars coming from Pitton have a Give Way signal at the junction but they need to come out into the road before seeing if the left turn into Firsdown is clear.The signage on the road is faded and the traffic signs are quite old and not set in a clear and open space allowing visibility for all.The police have records of the accidents at this site which have been more frequent of late
