Dear Mr Sweeney,

 

I am very sorry for the delay in returning our response to you.

 

I am writing in respect of your request for information from Somerset
County Council which has been dealt with under the provisions of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

I confirm that we do hold some of the information you are seeking and we
are able to provide it to you. Our response is detailed underneath your
questions as follows.

 

1.     Have the authority ever erected or removed temporary repeater
terminal signs on the B3109 Bradford road, Rode or Rode Hill, Rode. (Avon
and Somerset Enforcement Sites 3218 & 3139).

 

No

 

2.     During the period between January 2014 and February 2015, how many
requests have been made to the authority by Avon and Somerset Constabulary
to report defects with the speed limit signs at the sites listed above.

 

None

 

3.     Please provide copies of Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) for the
B3109 Bradford Road, Rode between Popular Tree Lane and A361, and Rode
Hill , Rode between the B3109 and Lower Street.

 

We can find no record of a 30mph TRO (Traffic Regulation Order) on
Bradford Road. This doesn’t mean that a TRO was never made; it means the
original Sealed Order has been misplaced. The council will need to obtain
a new TRO in due course.

 

If you feel your request has not been answered in sufficient detail or if
you wish to clarify the information given, please contact me and I will be
happy to address the issues you raise.

 

If you are not satisfied with the way in which your request has been dealt
with, or the information you have received, you can ask for an internal
review of our decision.

 

Please send your request to:

Hall, Taunton, Somerset, TA1 4DY or email

Please remember to quote the reference number 141538 in any future
communications.

 

An internal review will then be carried out and we will write to you with
the results of our investigation. If you are not content with the outcome
of our review, you may then apply directly to the Information
Commissioner’s Office ([2]www.ico.gov.uk) for an appeal.  The Information
