  • Dear Mr Sealey

    Thank you for contacting us via Fix My Street regarding a faded 60 mph sign on the A1.

    I appreciate you taking the time to report this.

    I have passed your observations onto our maintenance team who have inspected the sign. They have confirmed that the sign has reached the end of its life.

    We are not required to replace the sign as it's an additional repeater sign and there have been new signs installed around 150m prior to this one. However, due to the speeding in the area and the proximity to the speed camera, we will replace this sign. Unfortunately, I am unable to provide any timescales at this time.

    Thank you again for contacting us, I hope you find my response helpful.

    Kind regards National Highways
