  • Thank you for your enquiry. We would suggest that you contact Safety Community Team on 101 or via Northants Police website regarding issues with speeding and road safety. The posted speed limit in this residential area is 30mph and the issue on this occasion with the junction of Rectory Farm Road and Morgan Close would be with driver behaviour. Northamptonshire County Council are actively reducing the amount of street furniture and signage and road markings being installed on our roads and footways within a countywide programme of 'de-cluttering' where excessive, redundant and unnecessary signing on the highway will be removed. As other similar junctions on Rectory Farm Road, do not have such signage or road markings; then unfortunately we are not looking to install unrequired signs or road marking on the highway, unless there is a proven need for them.

    State changed to: not the council's responsibility
