  • Although it may be the tree departments responsibility to clear the vegetation I believe Northamptonshire Highways are responsible for ensuring speed limit signs comply with the regulations and therefore ensure the work is carried out.

    This is one of two speed limit signs between the 50 mph and 20 mph limit at Dayrell Road which do not meet the regulations. In other words 50% of the speed limit signs between these zones signs are invalid.

    Thanks very much
