Hi there,

The nearside 30 mph sign is obscured by the large direction sign.

The regulatory minimum clear visibility distance for a 30 mph sign on a 40 mph approach is 40 metres but the actual distance is only 20 metres.

Thanks very much

  • Hi there,

    Thank you for the update but I don't think this report should be closed until the signage has been inspected and a decision taken either way. Closing the report gives the impression the issue is already resolved.

    Thanks very much
