Thorney Toll locals want safety sign improvements

Residents at Thorney Toll, near Peterborough, have raised concerns about a new safety sign that cost £10,000.

Villagers expected to see two signs to be installed by the Highways Agency on the A47 near its junction with Lindens Close, but only one has been installed, with locals telling Peterborough Today that the measure does not address safety concerns.

Residents spent years campaigning for the signs and MP for North East Cambridgeshire Steve Barclay believes that the agency has ignored demand.

"As far as I was concerned it was agreed they would put up two signs. They have disregarded that and done the absolute minimum and put up one. As a result, they haven’t actually given drivers any notice of the turn-off," he told the newspaper.

Safety is also a key concern for councillors in Poole, who are looking at new measures to improve safety for pedestrians around the local harbour.

The BBC reported that the road layout has been criticised by a consultant's research, which ordered the borough council to act quickly to lower the probability of accidents.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801494546-ADNFCR
