Permanently illuminated matrix signs

Reported via mobile in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 17:36, Wed 14 December 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4035358.

There are TWO matrix signs warning of traffic queues that are permanently lit despite the westbound carriageway of the A31 through Ringwood being free-running. This is a hangover from completion of the two bridges replacement which was completed a month ago. Someone appears to have forgotten to turn ‘always on’ off!
