No warning signs of traffic lights

Reported in the Damaged / Missing / Facing Wrong Way category anonymously at 09:35, Friday 5 April 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 8 minutes later. ref: 1594768.

The temp warning signs for the new traffic lights, in both directions, have been place approx. 100 yard from the lights.

This does nothing to warn the huge amounts of fast moving and commercial traffic approaching round a long blind bend in both directions at 60 miles and hour, often large trucks with poor stopping ability. THERE WILL BE A MAJOR ACCIDENT if this is not fixed, and I'm scared it might be me as I use the A605 daily. Also daily, I turn left onto the A605 at these lights, and daily I see emergency braking and skids as people come round the corner, not anticipating red lights or queues of traffic waiting at red lights. Sometime soon, someone is not going to be able to brake in time.

The council is responsible for death or injuries if this is not addressed immediately.

I have already notified you of the risk, last week, and putting two temp signs 50 yards from the lights is not the answer.

My husband is aware that if I am involved in an accident caused by this neglect, he will sue.

Someone, please sort this out before someone dies or is seriously injured.
