Welney Wash Road set to benefit from electronic signs

New electronic warning signs could be put in place by autumn on a road between Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.

The A1101 Wash Road recently suffered floods, with locals criticising the use of metal road signs that have stayed on display even when the area is passable, reports the BBC.

Norfolk County Council agreed to spend £20,000 on three electronic signs, which alert motorists to the depth of the water, enabling them to make decisions on whether they can drive through flooded areas.

Vicky Ford, Eastern region discussed the issue, telling the news provider: "The new signs we have planned will now show that although the road is closed, the pub is perfectly accessible.

"Longer-term plans discussed included raising the level of the road with pipes underneath to divert flood waters."

It is crucial that authorities act quickly to put up warning signs in the event of a flood, or they could risk leading drivers to an accident.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801561602-ADNFCR
