  • The large yellow sign is obscuring the northbound lane of the A428 for anyone pulling out of the north exit from East Haddon. There was nearly an accident this morning and there will be one unless it is moved.

  • The sign is still there (as of Monday 8am) and will cause an accident as you have to pull halfway across a 60mph road of which you cannot see what is coming.

  • Driving on my way into work today pulling out of East Haddon onto A428 there is a large yellow road works sign which is positioned dangerously as you cannot see the oncoming traffic coming over the bend on a hill on a 60 mile speed limit road. Accident waiting to happen. Sign needs moving to a more appropriate place immediately

  • Tuesday 3rd December, the sign was still there this morning and I nearly had an accident as it is impossible to see if the A428 is clear before you pull out of Tilbury Road. Whoever thought this was an appropriate place for such a large sign? Are you actually waiting for an accident before it is moved?
