Road markings on RAF Feltwell

QUESTION:

I live and work on RAF Feltwell and I have nearly died on RAF Feltwell. My question is about the one-way streets on Feltwell. The only places I see the one-way notifications are on the housing side and they are not very clear. Pickenham and Downham Market are both one way streets are they not? Many times on my way to work I have come across parents driving their children to school going the wrong way, and in the evening I have met many a car whipping out of the parking lot toward Honington Street/Lakenheath Road going the wrong way.

Can the streets be either wiped clean if they are now two-way streets, or can the one way signs be made more visible?

ANSWER:

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I talked with my civil engineer squadron and we have raised a project to address traffic challenges on RAF Feltwell. The project will incorporate remarking worn road markings on the Pickenham and Cardington junctions and installation of new, additional one-way directional arrows, one-way signs and no entry signage at applicable roads and junctions. Recently we swept roads to remove surface debris and are replacing worn signs with new signage to make existing traffic patterns clearer to all. Road traffic safety is of paramount concern.
