Hidden national speed limit sign

Reported in the Damaged road sign category anonymously at 10:01, Thursday 8 August 2019

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 4 minutes later. Council ref: 1724521.

The national speed limit sign is hidden every summer in the hedge on the left side of the road (going towards Bristol). This means people think it's still a 30 zone and drive the entire way at that speed, all the way into Bristol. This is infuriating for drivers who are aware of the speed limit and I have seen some very dangerous overtaking on blind corners/hills as a result. It wouldn't take much to bring the sign in to view or paint the road accordingly.
