Superfluous sign in Kingsthorpe

Reported via desktop in the Damaged / Missing / Facing Wrong Way category anonymously at 22:34, Sun 28 November 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3148471.

The sign for ‘Superstore’ is so superfluous that it’s not even on your interactive map. It was put there when Safeway (now Asda) was built more than 30 years ago. It serves no purpose. It’s confusing as some people may actually decide to find this suppose superstore. It should be removed.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. The directional sign indicates the route towards the ASDA/Waitrose superstores. Should the situation change then the sign may then be considered redundant and removed as pat of a highway de-cluttering scheme.
