MP criticises Highways Agency sign charges

An MP has claimed to have received offers as low as £300 to install warning signs that the Highways Agency priced at £30,000.

North East Cambridgeshire MP Steve Barclay was stunned at the offer as he planned to erect two small signs on the A47 at Thorney Toll in order to notify road users of turns into Lindens Close, reports the Evening Telegraph.

Speaking on his blog, Mr Barclay said: "The local estimate does give an indication of the base cost of materials and an indication of just how inflated procurement at the Highways Agency has become."

He noted that many other people have been offered similar prices while sharing his disbelief.

Earlier this month, the Echo reported that safety signs will be installed on Southend's seafront in the next two weeks.

It is hoped that the move will help to cut down on accidents in the area, with their installation expected for completion in seven to ten working days.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800787715-ADNFCR
