New safety sign by garden centre on busy Essex road

19th May 2010 | Warning Signs

Motorists travelling down a busy road in Essex are set to benefit from the installation of a new safety sign warning them about possible traffic queuing ahead.

According to the Southend Standard, local company Olympus KeyMed has donated £95,000 to Essex County Council to fund the setting up of the sign.

The warning is to be placed on the busy A127 and will notify motorists of any possible traffic that may be tailing back to enter the Alton Garden Centre.

Melanie Jessen, spokeswoman for Olympus KeyMed, told the publication that staff from the medical equipment manufacturer were responsible for drawing attention to the garden centre build up of traffic and its likely dangers.

She said: "Following comments from our staff who had safety concerns in relation to the queuing traffic on the A127 at peak times, Olympus KeyMed has supported this project on a purely altruistic basis and in the interests of a safer environment for our staff and the residents of, and visitors to, Southend."

Meanwhile, it was recently highlighted that a number of recent accidents in a small town in Romania had led to the emergence of road signs advising motorists to be vigilant for drunken pedestrians.
