North Yorkshire Council criticised over road signs

North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) has been criticised for re-laying road surfaces without re-painting the necessary road signs.

The Selby Times has reported that James Street in the town last week saw its road totally resurfaced, but original markings, such as disabled bays and taxi rank outlines, were covered over.

Speaking  to the newspaper, local resident Chris Webb said: "This is a drastic waste of resources in my opinion. I’ve worked on roadwork repairs in the past and I know how expensive the process of marking lines can be. It’s not cheap."

A representative from NYCC also commented on the situation, explaining that the lines will be re-instated within the next two weeks.

Drivers should check that road markings and safety signs are in a good condition while travelling on the roads.

If they appear to be damaged, it is advisable to contact the local council immediately.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801570710-ADNFCR
