20mph SIGNS ON THE RING ROAD FOLLOWING RESURFACING

I have been asked by a number of residents why Highways have not collected the temporary 20mph signs from the locations that have recently been the subject of road maintenance. Set out below is the response from Highways:

“Dear Cllr Anderson

I instructed our contractor to leave the 20 signs on the ring road until the job is fully complete , in an effort to slow traffic down . I’m sure you’ll appreciate safety comes first especially when we surface dress a 70 mph dual carriageway .

Once the site is fully lined up and totally free of any loose chippings the signs will be removed .”
