Redundant 'diverted traffic' sign

Reported via desktop in the Unauthorised signs category anonymously at 16:54, Fri 5 May 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4521726.

'Diverted traffic' sign has been in this position for a good number of weeks. It would suggest that traffic existing Welbeck Avenue take an alternative route (a similar sign at opposite end of Avenue suggests traffic divert into this road.

Sign is sometimes up, other times face down.

Theres no reason to send traffic into this residential road. That and the above, suggest its been placed here without authority and should be uplifted.
