Worries voiced over Southend shared space signs

29th December 2011 | Health and Safety Signs

A Southend councillor has criticised safety signs situated in the area's seafront, describing them as not good enough.

The signs include the words "share space" on a blue background, alongside an illustration of a pedestrian, a car and a bike, instructing people to abide by local space sharing rules, reports The Echo.

Graham Longley, leader of Southend Council’s Liberal Democrat group, told the newspaper: "It seems to be inviting the three users to share space, rather than telling them it is space they have to share."

Mr Longley added that the position of the signs is also questionable, as people can sometimes only manage a glimpse at them.

Research from recently found that many drivers in Britain believe that warning signs should be lit up more appropriately at night.

It was found that 60 per cent of drivers believe that road signs are inadequately lit at night.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801251035-ADNFCR
