Men At Work warning sign outside 29 Bletchley Road (Newton Longville) needs to be removed as the hazard ceased on this road at the end of March 2023. The continued presence of this sign is misleading drivers, some of whom may be ‘learning’ to ignore such warnings. More importantly, as per the second photo this sign is damaged having presumably been hit by a passing vehicle.
One of several items of TM signage/equipment left by EWRA who have been saying since they vacated Compound B6 off Bletchley Road in early April that it will be removed but have failed to act (it was going to be April, then May, then July, then August, then September and now October). We are now outside the maximum 6 month period set in Chapter 4, the Department for Transport's Traffic Signs Manual paragraph 1.15.2 for the removal of temporary signage.
As part of our highway management strategy, unauthorised signs will be removed from the highway, removal will be prioritised according to highway safety, resource requirements and the interests of the community. The Council may exercise their discretion not to enforce in some situations (e.g. small scale charity events).
These signs will be held for 28 days and there will be a storage fee of the unauthorised signs that do not comply with this policy where applicable.
