Hi there,

Both 30 mph signs are obscured and only have 10 metres clear visibility. The regulatory minimum is 115 metres.

The give way sign is also obscured.

The verges look like they were cut very recently but the signs were left obscured,

Thanks very much

  • 6 months ?! Seriously?

    These 30 mph signs are covered by regulations and require a minimum of 115 metres clear visibility on a 60 mph approach road. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    This is a safety issue and needs to be resolved swiftly.

    Thank you very much
