Merge in turn sign is needed for safety
I AM writing in response to a comment you published by Ron Bowles about his experience of driving near Laira Bridge. I would be grateful if you would consider publishing my comments.
Driving through Heles Terrace from Plymstock and Laira Bridge and having to turn right on to Embankment Road, within 20 yards of the junction the offside lane merges with the nearside lane just before meeting the Plympton bound traffic coming from Gdynia Way.
These two lanes, in my opinion would, indeed, be considerably safer if a large sign saying 'Merge in Turn' were to be erected, or even markings on the road be placed instructing drivers to that effect. The merging of the two lanes as it is at present is dangerous and is an accident waiting to happen. I use this junction frequently in my business and I have seen a number of close encounters there, not to mention road rage by angry drivers cut up by impatient drivers attempting to merge out of turn.
Something must be done before there is a fatality.
