Pinchpoint 2 Sign Posts AN and AP Worn road in between the islands. Typical of the increased wear due to double the heavy traffic within the pinch points.

Typical loss of reflectors under the road surface This problem is throughout the system. No more illustrations will be given as long as this commonality is recognised.

Road here floods due to material being washed out of the secondary Downside Entrance (not to be confused with the main one.) This material then blocks the drains making any flooding worse

Badly worn road surface despite this having been replaced not so long ago. Probably caused by twice as much traffic in the pinch point (two directions) and heavy lorries pulling away on the hill

At Pinchpoint 7 Sign Post Z
Where pinchpoint was altered, the tarmac is wearing badly. It should be noticed that the building out of the pinch point shoulder on the near side as agreed at a meeting was not carried out. Persons on the pavement still feel threatened by lorries heading for them as there is no protection. Because this pinch point is now wider these lorries also travel at a higher speed making it worse
Around Pinchpoint 7
The road both to the north and to the south is much narrower than it used to be, with the banks encroaching in general. This can be seen from the road markings. It has been made worse recently by the incorrect positioning of a replacement electricity pole which should have been repositioned about eight feet back and higher up the bank. The bank is now collapsing and is liable to do so more with stormy weather. The whole bank needs taking back to where it used to be between pinch point 7 and the lay-by between pinch points 8 and 9

This is is a bad state of repair. The bus stop is in the bank. There is nowhere for people to queue for the bus except for in the road
