Inadequate Road Closure Signs

Reported anonymously at 19:59, Sat 20 April 2019

Cranford Road, Barton Seagrave will be closed for through traffic until 20th. August 2019. The Road Closure signage in Cranford is woefully inadequate and misleading. I live on Cranford Road, Barton Seagrave and all day long vehicles are driving along from Cranford and having to turn around at our location after misunderstanding the road closure/diversion signs in Cranford. The Diversion Sign (Large Arrow) in Cranford High Street points towards Cranford Road as if directing Traffic in that direction. Also when approaching High Street, Cranford from Grafton Road there is a sign saying Road Closed and again with an arrow pointing towards Cranford Road. Confusing for Motorists. When entering Cranford Road from the High Street/Grafton Road junction surely a visible structure across half of the carriageway would be appropriate to provide a visible indication that the road ahead is closed, leaving no doubt in their minds. What they do get is a view along Cranford Road and as far as the eye can see the road appears open to traffic. Clearly the current signage requires urgent review as demonstrated by the number of motorists who misunderstand it. This is leading to major frustration by those who are making this avoidable journey as many turn around and drive at high speed back towards Cranford. I also briefly looked at the signage where Cranford Road meets Barton Road where the road signs are equally poor.
