Speed Limit Warning Signs Damaged and Obscured A367 Southbound

Reported in the Road sign damage category by David Orme at 20:06, Mon 24 August 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2261525.

My earlier report about this safety issue approaching Dunkerton on the A367 southbound was updated on 14 Aug as "State Changed to: Fixed". No it isn't. The 300m warning sign - arguably the most important one - hasn't been repaired on the right hand side of the road (going down the hill towards the speed limit), and the 300m warning sign on the left hand side of the carriageway at the same point remains all but invisible, buried in the hedge. How on earth this state of affairs can be assessed as "Fixed" is mind-boggling.

  • As per my previous feedback comment. Your Highways Inspector was good enough to ring me to explain why this issue was shown as Fixed when, from the users' point of view, it hasn't been Fixed. I understand action is in hand to identify the landowner(s) and engage with them to get the warning signs on the southbound side of the road properly exposed. But until that is finally done the issue is not "Fixed" - the increased road safety risk in Dunkerton continues to exist below the warning signs. Administrative action in town is no real mitigation of that risk.
