30mph Warning Sign (illuminated) as you come into the village from Daventry is not working

The large '30 mph' illuminated warning sign that signals to vehicles who are exceeding the speed limit when coming into Norton from Daventry is not working. It looks like foliage has grown around the sensor equipment on the top of the sign; could this be a contributory factor? This has now been reported a number of times. Note: this sign is separate from the other sign which is located behind the initial one and is funded by Norton Parish Council.

  • Thank you for contacting Northamptonshire Highways. An engineer has attended site and found sign to be operating correctly. Due to the intermittent nature of the sign appearing not to work they have replaced the detector unit as preventative maintenance.
