New signs set for Hull Kingswood roundabout after markings cause…

A Kingswood roundabout is set for new road signs after markings there have led to confusion, according to local councillors. Hull City Council is set to provide new road signs in the area of the Barnes Way roundabout following resurfacing works carried out last month. Kingswood’s Cllr Charles Quinn and Cllr Mark Bisbey said on Facebook they had taken the issue up with the council’s highways department which said the markings followed national guidance. The markings were repainted on the roundabout during works which saw roads repaired to make them safe for drivers to travel on. Council Transport Portfolio Holder Cllr Mark Ieronimo said the road was in a very poor condition and works would make it future-proof.

They added the correct way to read them was left turn only in the left lane and straight over and right in the centre and right lanes. Councillors Quinn and Bisbey said: “We appreciate the new markings on the expanded Barnes Way roundabout are causing a lot of debate and confusion. The markings are correct from the Council’s point of view and follow the guidance given to councils by the Department for Transport which is to avoid right directional arrows and instead have straight arrows.
