Danger on Sanam Bin Road at its junction with the 4171.
Unfamiliar drivers can be completely unappreciative of the need to concede priority when heading north on Sanam Bin Road at its junction with the 4171. Visually the road appears to continue without interruption, curving to the right, with the result that drivers can regularly be seen travelling through the junction without conceding priority to traffic on the 4171. The problem is particularly acute during darkness.
The ‘STOP’ sign is obscured by the signs and canopy of the adjacent pharmacy. The plaque itself is totally faded, making it indistinguishable, with the result that approaching drivers completely miss this safety-critical warning. A new ‘STOP’ sign was installed and sited in a prominent position.
