Faded Sign

Reported via desktop in the Damage to Sign (NH) category anonymously at 09:45, Thursday 8 February 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5547231.

As you exit the A1 North Bound, these pair of signs are the only signed indicator of a speed change from a 50 to a 30. The sign here is soo faded, it is barely readable and to compound the issue, no further signs are present as you progress along the route towards MetroCentre.
