New road signs that cost over £200,000 have been criticised by councillors in Stevenage.

According to the Comet, 12 warning signs which give real-time traffic updates are being put up in the Stevenage area on behalf of Hertfordshire County Council at a price of £201,724.

However, Hertfordshire county councillor Sharon Taylor believes the notices are unnecessary.

"We’ve lived without them for 60 years and I don’t think they’re particularly going to help. The town is full of potholes and that should be the priority. I don’t know who has asked for them or where they’ve come from," Ms Taylor explained to the news provider.

Potholes have caused problems for motorists around the UK, who need to look out for them whenever they take to the roads this winter, or they could damage their vehicle or put themselves in danger.

The signs will be introduced to locations including Hitchin Road, Broadhall Way, Six Hills Way and Little Wymondley.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801542667-ADNFCR
