Signage on Whitfield Roundabout is confusing and obstructing view of drivers

Reported via desktop in the Sign Obscured (NH) category anonymously at 09:31, Tuesday 11 June 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6091551.

As you come from Sandwich Road onto Whitfield Roundabout, there are 3 or 4 large signs which are obstructing the view of drivers waiting to pull onto the roundabout. You cannot edge forward for risk of getting hit by a lorry. This sign needs moving or taking away. In addition there are numerous signs all around this roundabout which are not being used and are causing obstructions, restricted views and confusion to drivers. It looks untidy. I witnessed the other day a driver stop on the roundabout after the Canterbury turn as they were confused by all the signs especially one that says Diversion, when there clearly wasnt a diversion in place. This roundabout is dangerous at the best of times, so please can unused signage be removed and cleared away and not just left there to fester.
