West Bank

Winster, Derbyshire

An accident waiting to happen?

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Sign as first erected 14 Aug 2015 - some 19 months after originally ordered.
In this position a significant reduction of HGVs going UP West Bank was observed.

 16.6.16 The magical moving roadsigns

DCC Highways stated at a site meeting on 7.10.15 that all possible locations for this sign had been explored and the original position was the only one viable.
Following lobbying (and against the majority wish) DCC Highways have moved the sign (and the street sign which has been
 in position for 30+ years) to the left. Apparently "because the wall is listed".
(The whole property is listed to the curtiledge anyway!)
