Several illegible road traffic signs

Reported via mobile in the Obscured by vegetation or Dirty category anonymously at 13:48, Tue 21 November 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 5237470.

All of the road signs on the A605 from the Elton junction, starting with a 'Welcome to Northamptonshire' sign all the way to the Warmington Roundabout are either obscured by vegetation or covered in algae and moss to the point of being illegible, particularly at night. Some of these signs are important safety signs such as marking a no-U-turns stretch and it ending. It has been getting gradually worse for years but I feel it does now need attention. Thank you.
