  • Apologies for the late reply. i have just recieved this from our reporting system. We are aware that there are issues with obstructed directional signs on the length of road you mention. This road is subject to a monthly driven safety inspection. Obviously general clearance of this kind is hugely expensive and we are prioritizing regulatory and warning signs. We have submitted a request for funding for more large scale works unfortunately works such as this are prioritised for funding on a county wide basis and to date we have been unsuccessful in attracting funding.
