20 MPH sign was installed to replace the old one, then removed!!!!!!!!

Reported in the Road traffic signs category anonymously at 12:35, Wed 13 September 2017

Sent to Edinburgh City Council 5 minutes later

I reported the 20mph sign as being quite damaged by rust and sun, it was promptly replaced, and then promptly removed, ive been very patient, but a new one has not arrived. Further to this, the street regularly now has traffic moving at 20mph+++ despite the speed bumps which are of little use. Please replace the sign, if you could fix the awful pavements, that would be good. If you could further traffic calm the whole area, and this street in particular, that would shut me up for a while. Please sort this out, before someone is killed. Its not nice having a house that faces the road when people drive the way they do down it.

  • The speeding is getting much worse, its nearly as bad as the gridlock outside the primary school, I am now witnessing drivers speeding along here as normal, its only locals that are slowing down. still not fixed, what a joke.

  • A massive increase in vehicle speeds down this street due to a lack of signage, I witnessed a vehicle skid sideways down the street on the ice yesterday, it was only by luck that it missed the group of 6 children who had been in that spot just a minute or so before. PUT A NEW SIGN UP and PUT ROAD MARKINGS DOWN THAT CORRESPOND TO IT.
