Incorrect sign showing

Reported via iOS in the Damaged / Missing / Facing Wrong Way category anonymously at 10:52, Sat 7 November 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2374974.

An old 40mph sign which was previously covered over by black plastic is now showing as the plastic has torn. Now when entering High Road from Mallory Way it looks like the speed limit is 40mph when it is actually 30mph. The whole sign needs removing not covering with plastic.

  • Thank you for reporting this issue. This road is not yet adopted and so remains the responsibility of the developer. They have been notified of the need to remove the sign following the change in speed limit. I have also asked colleagues to make them aware that the torn plastic needs replacing (or preferably the sign should be removed, as you suggest).
