Cheshire council in sign spelling blunder

28th February 2014 | Warning Signs

Posted by Nicole Stevens

Contractors from Cheshire West and Chester Council have been left red-faced after an embarrassing spelling mistake on a road outside a school.

The road markings, meant to serve as a warning sign for drivers to keep clear of the school gates outside Highfield Primary School in Blacon, actually told them to "KEEP CLAER". This means nothing in Cheshire, nor across the border in nearby Wales.

The council is working to rectify the mistake as soon as possible, although the sign does serve as a pertinent warning to the primary school students about the importance of learning how to spell.

However, this will add time and cost onto the work currently being undertaken to make the outside of the school safer for children and road users, as there have been several near-miss incidents.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801698892-ADNFCR
