THE quality of road markings is in rapid decline, particularly in Scotland, it was revealed today.

As many as 40% of markings on Scotland's motorways and dual carriageways need immediate replacement, along with 40% of markings on dual carriageways in Wales and 38% of dual carriageways in England, the Road Safety markings Association said.

The organisation's national director George Lee said: "National standards are not being enforced and the quality of road markings is declining at an alarming rate."
