Road signs are an obstruction in the road
Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 22:13, Wednesday 8 July 2020
Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2192129.
There are a number of signs that cause a driver travelling eastbound then turning left on to Irthlingborough Road North to swing out dangerously into the path of on coming traffic. When the filter light is on, this has caused a several near misses for myself and others as traffic is approaching in the opposite direction. This is highly dangerous and the persons positions these signs do not appear to have considered the high risk of placing these signs in the road.
Thank you for reporting a fault. We will use the information you have provided to assess and prioritise this fault in accordance with our published response times for fault reports.

We have spoken to British Rail who have rectified the signs, we have also ask them to contact their traffic management company to arrange a better location on the highway for these signs to be placed.

Please be advised that the signs have once again been placed in a dangerous position in the road. This could cause a head-on collision due to the placement of the signs in conjunction with the traffic light filter and the sequence in place.
Please also be advised that anecdoctally this is not the first time these signs have been put back into a dangerous position. Last week this happened but a local resident moved them onto the pavement.
This back and forth cannot continue. The signs must either remain off the road or be removed altogether if people cannot be trusted to leave them in a safe place.
