Inappropriate signage warning of pedestrians crossing

Reported via desktop in the Sign problem category anonymously at 16:44, Tuesday 22 August 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4917482.

There are currently 'Pedestrians in the road' warning signs placed on both A413 approaches to highlight the fact that pedestrians may be crossing the road where the previous footpath was severed by the bypass. It may have been more appropriate to install Diagram 562 'Exclamation mark' warning signs with 'Pedestrians crossing' plates as these are more appropriate "where pedestrians frequently cross high-speed roads, although no formal provision is made for them ... Such locations may be where new by-passes intersect established pedestrian routes. As the crossing point is unlikely to be apparent to drivers, a distance should normally be added". If the existing 'Pedestrians in road' warning signs are to be used instead, then these need to be much bigger than those that currently exist to reflect the speed of approaching traffic etc
