Disappearing markings

According to one of the local papers, several pedestrian crossings located in the streets surrounding  the Glorieta de Gabriel Miró  in Orihuela have lost their white stripes.

There is a good reason for that. Here in Spain, road markings are done with some sort of paint which is sprayed on. In busy traffic areas, the markings can be gone in less than a year.

In England, I think I am correcting in saying, they use hot applied thermoplastic which might get dirty but doesn’t wear away quite so quickly.
