IMPORTANT: Sign advising of impending roadworks is blocking view of oncoming traffic

Finedon, as you exit Harrowden Road onto Wellingborough Road. A sign has been put up on the left advising of impending roadworks - this is a low sign on the verge which is blocking view of those exiting Harrowden Road so you cannot see oncoming traffic - especially if you have a small/low base care. This is going to cause a terrible accident. Caller witnessed a near-miss today. She advised this is not the first time this has happened - everytime there are roadworks - the signs keep getting put up in the same place. Please place them in another safer location.
