Emergency area sign not removed

Reported via mobile in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 06:52, Fri 4 November 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3937752.

The new ‘final’ emergency area sign has been installed on a new post but the old sign has been left on the gantry leg. It needs to be removed. It says “emergency refuge area”. Everywhere else on the M42 it has been removed but here the contractor obviously forgot to remove. Please sort.
