Missing No Through Road sign

Reported in the Road traffic signs category by D Croall at 11:29, Tuesday 12 June 2018

Sent to Essex County Council 1 minute later

Copford, Hall Rd at B1408 junction

Missing No Through Road sign. Signpost previously collapsed through corrosion and reported on Essex Highways portal. Lack of sign contributing to increase of traffic unaware that Hall Rd is NOT a through route including alternative one to Colchester Zoo. This is a safety issue on the northern pedestrian route to Pitts Wood local amenity. Vehicle driving fast in attempt to get to zoo hit a local dog earlier this year (after the missing sign had been reported). Please replace the sign as soon as possible, potentially with the existing 30 zone sign further up.

    We have investigated and risk-assessed this issue. Every report we get is treated as very important and we aspire to repair all highway defects in good time. Essex is a large county and across a network covering more than 5000 miles of road, more than 1500 structures and 127,000 street lights, we need to prioritise how we spend your council tax money to best effect for all residents. At present we prioritise our principal road network, the repair of the worst pot holes and other safety critical work such as flooding and bridge repairs. Our recent inspection of this issue has prioritised it as not as serious as some of the other defects we are aware of, so we have recorded it and will consider it when we are planning future works in the area. Consequently, you do not need to report this issue again. This does not mean that this issue is not important to us; we will repair it just as soon as is humanly possible given the constraints explained.

    It will be regularly monitored through future scheduled inspections to see if it has worsened. A future inspection may result in its current prioritisation being changed if there has been significant deterioration.

    Thank you for helping us to keep Essex roads in the best condition we can.
