Signs need repainting

Reported via Android in the Street nameplates category anonymously at 20:25, Wed 5 April 2017

Sent to Cheshire West and Chester Council 5 minutes later

The signs at the end of Browns Lane and Hugh Street have pretty much faded away to nothing.

Although the fact that they're cast metal means the lettering can still just about be read in daylight, it can make it tricky for people to find the street. In particular, they're completely unreadable at night.

Not suggesting this is an urgent matter or anything, but it'd be nice if you could add them to the to-do list next time you are in a position to carry out painting of street signs around Chester.
