Temporary speed limit signs wrong

Reported via desktop in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 21:53, Sun 11 September 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3818065.

This area of the southbound carriageway was changed to a 50mph zone many years ago, and temporary 50mph signage was put in place. A black plastic bag was placed over a national speed limit repeater sign, and a full size temporary national speed limit sign put up just before the southbound lay-by.

The black bag on the national speed limit repeater sign, came off a couple of years ago, so some people are increasing their speed early, whilst most ignore the 50mph limit altogether.

Is it not time that there was some permanent 50mph signage erected, and the temporary ones removed to avoid confusion?
