Project aims to reduce Wolverhampton road signs

Road signs are being taken down in Wolverhampton in an effort to de-clutter the city's streets and prevent drivers from becoming distracted.

The Express and Star has reported that council bosses are asking residents to indicate which warning signs they believe are no longer required as part of the project.

A selection of redundant signs or signposts has already been removed from locations, along with a number of temporary notices.

Councillor Peter Bilson, Wolverhampton City Council’s cabinet member for economic regeneration and prosperity, said: "As well as being unsightly and spoiling the natural environment, having too many signs dotted around poses a safety risk as they can be very confusing for drivers and pedestrians.

"In addition, having too many signs in one area, or too much information on one post – dilutes the more important messages to drivers."

Drivers who are uncertain about the meaning of any safety signs should carry out research as soon as possible to boost their knowledge.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801545966-ADNFCR
