Motorists baffled as council replaces wiggly lines and 'alien' road markings with wonky yellow path
Motorists in a seaside town have been left baffled as the council replaced wiggly road markings and a white circle which looks like ‘alien landing pad’ with a yellow path that ‘looks like something out of The Wizard of Oz’.
North Somerset Council sparked anger earlier this year in the town of Clevedon when it painted wiggly lines on the historic Victorian seafront as part of redevelopment works.
But now people in Clevedon say last night, workers removed the bendy lines and roundabout – and installed a new bright pathway.
Residents said the new yellow pathway looks ‘like something out of The Wizard Of Oz’.
Furious residents took to social media this morning to share their distaste for the road marks.
One wrote: ‘Seems like NSC are at it again at night once again taking away lines and removing the roundabout on the seafront. How much is this costing us? Why?
‘For eight hours overnight, contractors worked to paint new markings – thick white lines separating the cycle lane from the road.’
One person added: ‘Well have woken up to this (although with 8 hours of noise it was difficult to sleep!) this is just one nights work from the ‘yellow contractors’ three more to go!!!
