Flickering sign lights

Reported via mobile in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 21:35, Wed 5 January 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3218965.

This is at the no entry sign at the top of the M5J27 northbound exit slip. It’s on the right hand side at the top of the slip as you leave the motorway. There is a double light arrangement which would put a light over each side of a sign. There is no sign on the slip side of the No-entry sign, yet there is a bulb in the light housing and it is flickering. The bulb needs to be removed but not replaced as it is distracting drivers on the slip and is wasting money /carbon as there is nothing to light. (How many other lights have you got, National highways, which are lighting non-existent signs??). Thanks
