Misleading road closed signs

Reported in the Road traffic signs category anonymously at 12:15, Fri 18 October 2019

Sent to Norfolk County Council 4 minutes later

Spirketts Lane effectively closed/blocked by signage at the junction with Shotford Road when in fact the road is open up to the bypass and industrial estates. Together with the closure of Mendham Lane this is causing gridlock in the town centre at busy times. Motorists incorrectly think they cannot use Spirketts Lane so head into town to use Mendham Lane only to lock horns with traffic trying to come out of town to avoid the Mendham Lane closure. The signs should be at the Harvest Way/Mendham Lane roundabout. Please sort ASAP, it's chaos at school times.
