York road signs condemned by conservation chiefs

Conservation chiefs have criticised the number of warning signs on selected roads in York.

They have particularly singled out a new 20mph zone in Fishergate, where there were 39 poles, 40 signs and six bollards last year, before more were recently added, according to the York Press.

Speaking to the newspaper, Sir Ron Cooke, chairman of York Civic Trust, said: "Outside the inner city, the multiplication of unnecessary and expensive signs is becoming scandalous.

"Signs, posts and other clutter is reproducing at an alarming rate."

The York Civic Trust's annual report has also questioned if the warning signs have even affected driver behaviour or lowered speeds.

Earlier this month, the Mid-Devon Star revealed that Tiverton companies are concerned that road closures are causing them to lose trade.

Work is being conducted to repair draining pipes and resurface roads in the Leat Street area, meaning that road signs are diverting traffic away from businesses in the Westexe area.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800729731-ADNFCR
