Missing cul-de-sac and traffic joining signs

Reported in the Damaged / Missing / Facing Wrong Way category anonymously at 23:26, Sat 4 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2186010.

Thorpeville is a cul-de-sac and with the recent A43 dualling, there is no signage to indicate that the turning in to Thorpeville is a dead-end. Also, since the A43 dualling, traffic leaving Thorpeville are now usually obligated to wait for an extended time, awaiting a gap in the traffic from the Spinney roundabout. It would help to have a sign encouraging traffic leaving the Spinney roundabout to make allowances for the joining traffic.
