Hi there,

  • Hi there, sorry to re-open this but a really poor job has been done in cutting the vegetation. A minimal amount of vegetation has been cut which just about reveals the 40 mph sign however no vegetation has been removed from the other side of the sign (national speed limit) so it remains completely hidden in the bushes.

    Thanks very much

  • Thank you for your further comments. We can confirm that maintenance was carried out here on the 8th of October. There are no safety concerns in this area as only one of the signs is required to be visible. The vegetation on the other side of the road will be cut back, in the next six months, under our routine programme.
