Road closed sign in dangerous location

Reported via desktop in the Sign problem category anonymously at 14:01, Mon 24 July 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4819788.

The section of road between little Horwood and the railway bridge on the windows road has been closed several times in the last year. Each time Road closed signs are put up so that the get back to the sign is facing the oncoming traffic as per the photos. This blends in with their road surface making it very hard to see as you approach and therefore makes a hazard that I have nearly hit each time this happens.

Please can someone move it to the other side of the road so that the brightly coloured closed side of the sign is placed towards the oncoming traffic so that it can be safely seen and avoided and a note added to stop this happening again- it is very dangerously paced at the moment. That’s
