Speed limit confusion

Reported via mobile in the Road sign damage category anonymously at 16:05, Friday 23 April 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2687861.

I’ve just walked the children down the hill from school. The traffic going up and down it is travelling between 40-60mph. The signage is not at all clear. Working on the Highway Code, where there are streetlights and no other signage the speed limit is 30mph. There is no sign on the exit of Hallatrow suggesting that the speed limit is the national speed limit as once was, however there are no 30mph signs suggesting that it might have been changed. The sign as you exit Highlittleton shows national speed limit, however there is no 30mph sign through Hallatrow. I believe (given the a4 sized notices on the lampposts) that it is in fact a 30mph limit zone now. As such I think the action should be as follows: 1 - Remove NSL sign from HL side. 2 - Erect 30mph signs all the way along the road 3 - Erect ‘Caution, New Speed Limit’ Sign at either end of the revised road 4 - Put Mobile Speed Camera within the farm/nursing home entrances to slow traffic and ensure people have their attention drawn to the new speed limit If the pavement is to be used by the local children these need to be actioned post haste.
