Holy Island causeway safety signs to be fitted in two weeks

New safety signs that aim to reduce the number of drivers stranded on Holy Island's tidal causeway will be fitted by the end of the month.

The notices were imported from the US and delivered to Northumberland County Council on Monday (September 10th), with an installation date expected to be set in the coming fortnight, reports the Berwick Advertiser.

Over the Easter period, a two week trial was held and the notices were found to have a positive effect, as motorists paid more attention to the dangers of the tides.

The safety signs will be installed at both ends of the causeway and are solar-powered, featuring a battery-back up.

The Holy Island Causeway Group was established in November to discuss options for the region and included officers from the county council and Northumbria Police.

Chair of the group councillor Pat Scott hopes that the signs will make people "think twice" about driving across the causeway at unsafe times.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801447389-ADNFCR
