Cumbria road signs set to be restored
Posted by Ben Alexander
Traditional road signs are to be restored in Cumbria villages over the course of a seven year programme.
A total of £20,000 will be spent over the time period to boost the condition of fingerpost signs, with the total cost of such work currently standing at £137,000, reports the BBC.
To help reach this amount, parish councils have been asked to contribute.
Speaking to the news provider, Councillor Martin Stephenson, chairman of Eden Local Committee, said: "Traditional fingerpost signs are part of our highway heritage and contribute to the distinctiveness of the local area.
"Maintaining and restoring these signs will protect them for many years to come and ensure our rural communities retain some of their character and a link to the past."
Elsewhere in the UK, the Border Telegraph recently reported that visitors to the Scottish Borders will be welcomed by new signs.
The local council gave approval for fresh notices after the previous signs stood for almost a decade.
