Bridgnorth Road speed limit signs replaced at last!

Telford & Wrekin Council have finally replaced the 30/40 speed limit signs on Bridgnorth Road between Tweedale and Brookside Avenue, almost 8 months after I first reported the missing signs to them.

The missing signs were replaced in July but instead of the correct, large delimiter signs being put up the contractors instead put up repeater speed limit signs which are not legal.

I had some correspondence with the highways department who were under the mistaken impression that it is acceptable to mark the boundary of two speed limits with repeater signs despite this clearly not being the case as anyone capable of doing a Google search can find out.  This is the second time this year that I've informed the council that they've done something that's not legal and it's taken them months to concede that they were wrong (the other occasion was the pay and display car park at the council-owned Addenbrooke House that they didn't have planning permission for).
