Redundant 40mph speed limit sign littering verge on Whaddon Road, Newton Longville, near the Black Barn between Weasel Lane and the Network Rail maintenance area next to bridge OXD09.
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.
This has been passed to the local area technician to investigate, they will carry out an inspection within the next 10 working days and if required arrange to resolve the issue.
