‘Speed warn­ing’ signs need fix­ing, town hall boss told

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

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.”
