Street sign damaged

Reported by Anna Lawson at 15:45, Thursday 28 February 2019

Sent to North Kesteven District Council 4 minutes later

Once upon a time there was a very large road sign, which indicated directions. These directions included information of low bridges in the area, which provided information to the large lorries that travel along the route.

One day in January/February 2017, a lorry knocked the sign over - the posts are still there to prove of its prior existence.

Despite lots of phone calls and reporting by the lovely local parish council and residents, the sign is sadly still missing.

Perhaps Highways should look at the extensive reporting that has been done over this issue, or even their own records to clarify the situation.

  • No, still waiting for sign to be re-instated! It has only been two years since it was reported and 18 months since LCC Highways advised that they had sent the order to the suppliers.

  • No, still not sorted!

    Is this because it is the parish council making the request, as I notice that 4 new road signs are going to be placed to warn people about the presence of deer which was made by our District and County Councillor?

  • Bardney Bridge has been closed for three months and has now been finally re-opened - adequate time for a major road sign to be re-instated. This sign does not affect the people of Bardney, however it does affect those in Potterhanworth, Washingborough and Nocton. The missing sign warned lorry drivers of the height of the bridges in Potterhanworth and Washingborough.

    This sign has now been missing for 2 and a half years.
