At the entrance to Fern Lea Drive - opposite the Christie Macclesfield

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3511421.
The white road markings have virtually disappeared at the entrance to Fern Lea Drive, leading to confusion about who has right of way. There have already been several near-misses. I assumed that, on completion of the new Christie Macclesfield, all of the road markings and street furniture would be made good, but unfortunately only the double yellow lines and the markings on the hospital road were painted. In addition, about 6 years ago I reported a broken illuminated bollard on the small traffic island at the top of Fieldbank Road. The broken bollard has been removed but never replaced. And finally, could we please have a new Fern Lea Drive sign - I have personally repaired the current one after it was damaged some years ago, but the paintwork has faded to the extent that it is no longer clear that this is a cul-de-sac. I had assumed that, once the Christie had been finished, the whole area opposite their main entrance would be made good - unfortunately this is not the case and it detracts from what is otherwise an attractive building and grounds.
Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.
Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.
We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.
During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.
Thank you for your patience.
