Prohibited Signage You Stated You Would Remove But Haven't

The request was successful.

Dear B&NES Freedom Of Information Department

I request the following information in the usual stipulated 20 working day time limit.

Back in May of this year, I contacted you regarding your deployment of forbidden repeater signage on a 30mph street lit restricted road covered by a TRO.

Your Information Governance Team supplied the following;

‘The Senior Engineer from the Council’s Traffic Management team has confirmed that the road in question was subject to a 30 mph speed limit Traffic Regulation Order (1979).

Since the introduction of the speed limit order the road has been lit by a series of streetlights, however there appears to have been some oversight in regards to the removal of the signage in question. The Council will therefore arrange for these signs to be removed in due course.’

The full exchange can be viewed here:

However, the expressly prohibited signage is still deployed by the side of the carriageway and could be removed by in just a few minutes with the right tools and a ladder.

Q1. Please supply all internal correspondence and resulting dated work orders relating to the above pledge that you made.

Q2. If no correspondence and resulting dated work orders can be located, why has no action been taken given the amount of time that has passed?

Yours faithfully,

Gregory Lake
