Snowdonia National Park sign faces criticism

Proposals for a dot matrix sign to be introduced to alert motorists of a bridge closure in Snowdonia have been criticised due to their size.

The electronic notice has been conceived in a bid to inform drivers travelling across the A470 towards Machynlleth, Powys when the Dyfi Bridge is not in operation, reports the BBC.

However, the warning sign will measure 4m x 2m, which has caused the Snowdonia National Park Authority to call for a smaller version.

Councillor Alwyn Gruffydd has also spoken out against the notice, telling the news provider: "It is the sheer size of the sign that is the problem it will be 15ft wide and 9ft high in an area of natural beauty which needs to be protected."

It is not the first sign to come under fire from locals, as the Croydon Advertiser recently reported that notices introduced in the region have been slammed by locals because they point in the wrong directionADNFCR-2754-ID-801472591-ADNFCR
