Road line mys­tery

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Front Page -

RES­I­DENTS have been left per­plexed af­ter a bizarre road mark­ing ap­peared on a small res­i­den­tial street last week.

One man who lives on Calder Av­enue in Orm­skirk says the ‘ran­dom’ white stripe, which is just a few me­tres in length, seemed to ma­te­ri­alise overnight.

He said: “This is a tiny, quiet, 20mph street with no through traf­fic.

“It’s to­tally point­less be­cause the only ve­hi­cles are ei­ther res­i­dents or de­liv­er­ies.

“I fail to see why road mark­ings are needed - full stop - but this is just strange.

“To be clear, there are ab­so­lutely no other mark­ings along this road.”

A spokesman for Lan­cashire County Coun­cil said: “It would ap­pear that this line has been re­painted by a util­ity com­pany af­ter mak­ing a re­pair to that sec­tion of the road.

“The cen­tre line on the rest of the road has faded and we will add it to our list for fu­ture main­te­nance.”
