A12, Junction 19: Temporary "50 mph" sign displayed to southbound traffic, but no subsequent signs to show end of speed restriction.

Reported via desktop in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 22:51, Fri 29 April 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3492452.

A single temporary "50 mph" sign is displayed at the left-hand side of the southbound carriageway (where the road passes below a flyover). If there truly is a speed restriction in place then a single sign is not really adequate on such a major road. However, there are no down-stream signs to indicate the end of any speed restriction. Also, no speed restriction signs are displayed to vehicles joining the southbound carriageway at this junction.

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways about the single temporary 50mph speed sign on the A12 at Junction 19.

    We appreciate that this might cause some confusion for drivers. The work at Boreham Interchange is being is being led by Essex Highways so although the sign may be on our road, we’ve not placed it there. It seems likely that this is for the lane closure on the slip road, not for the mainline A12. If you’d like to report a problem at the Boreham Interchange, you can do this on the website here. You can also get more information about signs at this location.

    Alternatively, other contact details can be found on the Boreham Capacity Improvements page of Essex County Council’s website.

    Thank you again for your report.

    Kind regards

    National Highways.
