Incorrectly covered speed limit sign on Whaddon Road, Newton Longville

Reported via iOS in the Sign problem category anonymously at 10:47, Sun 8 October 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5073648.

Temporary 40mph speed limit was imposed on Whaddon Road from a point north of bridge OXD09 and just short of the Bottledump roundabout/A421. This ceased to be in effect when EWRA completed their road surface treatment work and replaced road markings 02/09/2023. We do though still have this one covered National Speed Limit Sign with the black plastic cover still to remove and that needs to be done ASAP as we know from comments made in the village that there is confusion about what the limit is in the village.

Background: Problems following EWRA resurfacing work on Whaddon Road completed December 2022. It was found that there was an issue with the road surface. Temporary 40mph speed limit imposed for the stretch of road from a point north of railway bridge OXD09 (where the National Speed Limit would normally apply) through to just short of the Bottledump roundabout and the A421. The road surface problem resolved by 2 September 2023 and normal speed limit reinstated but a significant amount of EWRA signage and two MVAS units remained. This pointed out to EWRA and Network Rail had a One.Connect notice KL343EWR2-2B-B3-0053 for 3-4 October to collect what was left. Some of their TM equipment was removed but as per this FMS ticket, the job has still to be completed.
