Mobile dot matrix sign causing congestion/ distraction

Reported via mobile in the Electronic Sign (NH) category anonymously at 10:12, Tuesday 12 March 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5700224.

Good morning,

There is mobile dot matrix sign positioned just before J5 southbound M53 as three lanes merge into two. The sign has been positioned in the past week and is a long distance away from the carriageway. The text is small and there is a large amount of detail describing the roadworks due to take place over 20+ weeks on the M53. The positioning of this sign and the small text is causing traffic to slow significantly at the point of the lane merger, which is causing a large amount of unnecessary and potentially dangerous congestion through distraction especially at rush hour. Please could this sign be moved or a much larger sign be installed?

Many thanks.
