Council campaign removes needless road signs

A council campaign in Bedforshire has seen 100 needless warning signs, railings and bollards removed from roads.

The mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, began the scheme over three months ago, urging residents to locate unnecessary or out-dated safety signage, with a ten-year-old "new road layout" sign among those that were removed, reports Bedfordshire On Sunday.

Mr Hodgson told the news provider: "Unnecessary street clutter makes it more difficult for pedestrians to negotiate our pavements and to cross the road, while excessive or out-of-date signage is unhelpful and potentially confusing for drivers."

He also commented that the amount of clutter removed in the campaign's first few months illustrates that the work is sorely needed.

Figures from the Department of Transport recently showed that the number of fatalities on Britain's roads has fallen below 2,000, as 1,857 people were killed in road accidents last year.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800618923-ADNFCR
