Helston Town Council is opposing proposals for a garage business in the area amid safety worries.

HiQ is hoping to install an 8ft "totem" sign close to its reception area in Turnpike, but the authority's planning committee has raised worries, reports West Briton.

Members of the committee noted that "line of sight would be severely impaired for traffic from Godolphin Road looking up Clodgey Lane creating a highways hazard at a busy roundabout".

Planners from Cornwall Council will decide whether the application will be accepted.

As well as this, the authority announced that it would be "minded" to support another signage application by HiQ if a separate application was forwarded.

Safety signage was also put under the spotlight by the Belfast Telegraph recently, which reported that Irish transport minister Leo Varadkar has written to regional development minister Danny Kennedy regarding the confusing nature of M1 signs at Blaris.

Thanks to his action, notices at the turn-off are to be extended by one metre.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801393281-ADNFCR
