A frame sign left for several months on Branch Road at the junction with the A47. It is a Highways England sign about the temporary closure of the road many months ago. From the junction with the A47 it is located on Branch Road on the right hand side before the railway bridge
Thank you for contacting National Highways regarding the redundant roadworks equipment on the A47. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention.
National Highways employ external contractors to carry out roadworks on motorways and strategic A roads. These contractors are required to remove all temporary signs and equipment when the works are finished. Sometimes this does not happen as effectively as we would like. We are currently looking into a way that we can overcome this issue and will endeavour to remove all redundant signage and equipment at our earliest opportunity.
We have passed your report onto our local inspector to action.
Thank you again for contacting us.
