‘Speed warning’ signs need fixing, town hall boss told
ELECTRONIC signs that warn motorists when they are driving too fast are broken - or faulty - because there is no cash to repair them, a councillor has claimed.
A meeting of Oldham council was told a review of vehicle-activated speed signs across the borough is ongoing. Council leader Sean Fielding said he was ‘hopeful’ he will soon be able to allocate funding for repairs.
He said: ”It’s true there is an ongoing piece of work around vehicle-activated speed signs. I recognise how important it is for people across the borough and those were installed for a reason in the first place, so I would assume that the reason for their original installation still stands today.
“I’m hopeful to be able to allocate some funding towards the repair of those signs.”
