40 Camborne Avenue

Reported via desktop in the Sign problem category anonymously at 19:45, Fri 3 November 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5172411.

This is a picture of the 30mph speed limit sign on the road. It has faded so much, it is unreadable. I have never before, anywhere in the world, seen a speed restriction sign which fades. Where did you buy this? More economic waste! This implies the Council cannot even be bothered to maintain a pretence of enforcing that Camborne Avenue is a 30mph zone. Can this please be replaced with a proper sign which doesn't fade in the modicum of sunshine we receive. I would also like to point out that when I highlighted the terribly poor state of the Camborne Avenue road surface a year ago, the Council referred me to a report saying that road vibrations did not cause structural damage to nearby property. However, if someone at the council had read the report, they would have realised that damage is directly proportional to traffic speed. And average speeds on Camborne Avenue significantly exceed 30mph. This failure to provide proper speed limit signs constitutes negligence. Please resolve asap.
