Road closure had 'inadequate signage'

Additional safety signs have been required to warn drivers in Oxfordshire of a road closure, after a resurfacing scheme near Kingston proved confusing for motorists.

Drivers have complained that there were not enough warning signs or alternative route guides at the closure of the A415 Kingston Road, with only one erected at Millets Farm Centre a fortnight before the work began, the Oxford Times reports.

“Most people did not realise roadworks were taking place with the one sign," Kingston Bagpuize parish council member John Smith told the newspaper.

"It certainly was inadequate signage."

The road was supposed to be closed until Friday (September 23rd), but was able to reopen ahead of this as the work has been finished earlier than expected.

This week, Liberal Democrat transport minister Norman Baker said councils will be allowed to introduce thousands of new road signs without the need to get approval from Whitehall.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800737698-ADNFCR
