Speed limit infrigements on the A4

Earlier this year, some efforts were made to advertise and enforce the 30MPH limit on the A4 as it leaves Marlborough in the direction of Hungerford. Now, there is no police presence and the sign going up the hill that clearly showed that this is a 30MPH and not a 40MPH zone has disappeared (vandalised?).
Cars are again travelling at speeds up to 60MPH, particularly up the hill — accelerating away from town.
Can something please be done (this is a residential road with many children on foot and bikes, coming and going to school, etc). The sign should be restored and we do need some police presence.
Hmm … Other than an acknowledgment from Wiltshire County Council that they'd received the report via FixMyStreet, I don't think anything else has happened. No policing, no sign to replace the removed 30MPH sign.

As far as I can tell, nothing has been done about this …

It's depressing that this problem has not apparently received further attention. The signage has not been restored and, to the best of my knowledge, there's been no interest taken in calming traffic on this key road.
