30 MPH signs duplication.

More of a query than a problem - now! On A44 approaching Penybont, there are 30MPH signs with a red border. These are mandatory signs indicating it IS a 30MPH zone. However the words states it starts in 200 yds. Is this a misleading sign? In the other direction it has a black border to a similar sign. Which is correct? Where does the actual 30 mph zone start?

  • I have made further enquiries and understand the latest revision of the road signs manual allows the red borders to these signs, but does not impose a duty to change existing signs. Hope this saves time in investigating.

    State changed to: Fixed
