UN­FIN­ISHED road mark­ings on Char­ing Hill are due to be fin­ished by the end of this week, says Kent County Coun­cil.

One concerned res­i­dent con­tacted the Ken­tish Ex­press, fear­ing there could be an ac­ci­dent.

The man, who did not want to be named, said: “This area is used as a rat run and cars come shoot­ing down the road and with­out the lines on the junc­tion it looks as though the road goes straight on.

“It makes it dif­fi­cult for mo­torists who won’t know the road. I’m wor­ried there could be an ac­ci­dent.”

The change to the lay­out of the lines at the junc­tion was part of a safety scheme pro­moted by KCC.

Due to a break­down in com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween the work crews they were not able to im­me­di­ately mark out the lines.

A KCC spokesman said: “Kent High­way Ser­vices ex­pects to com­plete re­in­state­ment of the lin­ing this week on Char­ing Hill.”
