Hi, I wish to notify you of an issue regarding road marking on West st, at Stonebridge Heights. I feel the road marking is wrongly set out, making it look like there is a passing lane here. There's two lanes for only 50 metres or so, on West st at the intersection of Stonebridge Heights. We live overlooking this intersection where West st narrows off and becomes one lane before going around the bend, and have seen many times people think its a passing lane and theres two vehicles going around the corner heading towards Halcombe, but its one lane. People are also excessively speeding here as they think its a passing area before it actually gets to the passing area. I feel there should not be broken white lines here, and that there should only be a turning bay box for traffic heading into Stonebridge Heights only, and not two lanes. We feel its very dangerous, my neighbour also agrees. It would be great if you could come have a look and review the terrible road marking here. Kind regards Kirstie Lake
