The stop line for vehicles approaching from the Europa Way direction and heading towards Park Drive is very worn and is now almost invisible if the road is wet.

I use this junction daily. As you approach the junction from the Europa Way direction, vehicles heading towards Park Drive have to stop and give way to eastbound traffic coming from the Princes Drive direction. The stop line is now very worn, virtually non-existent and becomes completely invisible when the road is wet. Drivers who are not used to this junction frequently do not realise that even though the lights are green they have to give way to oncoming traffic. The fact that this line is so worn is causing many drivers to fail to stop. There have been a number of accidents at this location and I fear that sooner or later there will be a fatality because of this situation. In the short term the line needs refreshing as a matter of urgency and I would suggest in the longer term putting a filter on the lights for traffic heading towards Park Drive which will eliminate the problem entirely. This is a very unusal, and in my opinion rather dangerous junction. In essence a green light here does not give freedom to "go" as it usually does elsewhere and that potentially confuses drivers unfamiliar with the local layout.
