  • Large sign at the junction of Park Rd and Ulverston Road Swarthmoor blocking vision of oncoming traffic from the right

  • Ridiculously large sign at the junction of Park Road and Ulverston Road in Swarthmoor. The sign is far too large as well as the posts, not just cars are having problems getting out of that junction but there are vans and large lorries that deliver and use that junction and they are having big problems being able to see as the sign completely blocks their vision.

    Someone has already been out and moved some bollards but this isn’t really going to rectify the problem and before long there are going to be accidents!
