Temporary road closure sign missing

Reported via desktop in the Sign missing/defective category anonymously at 09:31, Tue 1 November 2022

Sent to Shropshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 14099087.

Two temporary signs were provided at the entry to Crowmeole Lane when the road closure at the bridge near to Sandiway was put in place . Whether it is strong winds or vandalism ,I don't know , but I have replaced them several times , when I found them flat on the ground.. Now , one of the signs , as marked , is missing ; also the sandbags weighting it down have split and are blocking the footpath .. Could permanent signs be supplied now ? If not , a new temporary one - and the sand bags cleared and new ones provided .. Signing is still needed , since some vehicles are still using Crowmeole Lane .

  • MESSAGES POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA Related issue to this report Subject: Partial closure of Crowmeole Lane 9 Nov 22 "Please could a better solution to these folding signs be found? It blows / gets pushed over every day now, and it's very dangerous at 5pm, in the dark, because it's almost invisible. Adding a sandbag doesn't seem to solve it. I do pick it up sometimes, but shouldn't have to." 14 Nov 22 "[The sign] has been put up by myself over the weekend. The sandbags and folding sign are not good enough if we, as residents, have to fix it daily. I have reported this before, along with the moving red and white barriers." 14 Nov 22 "The location is both ends of the Crowmeole Lane closure, where all signs get moved, and in the middle, where the barriers are. The buses go through at such a speed, maybe they are pushing the barriers?"

  • The temporary sign at the junction Croemeole Lane and Radbrook Road has collapsed onto the footpath again , partially blocking the footpath . One sandbag used to weight it down is split and ineffective . A more premanent solution is needed urgently . I have put the signs back several times in the past ; but after an operation on my hand , I can no longer do it - but nor should I have to . The current system for securing the signs is not fit for purpose and needs doing properly .

  • This sign spends more time collapsed on the floor than upright. The sandbags have burst and need to be replaced so that the tressle does not blow over. It's about time these signs were made permanent. This problem is being reported overe and over, please do something about it.

  • Sign is down again, on the floor as usual. It is a trip hazard now as well as not serving it's proper purpose. There needs to be a permanent solution to this ongoing issue please.

  • Why not simply attach the sign to the existing Give Way sign with Cable Ties. Having to report the same problem is very annoying and it is always always the same issue. Just fix it to the Give way sign or make the sign permanent on both sides of the road now that the trial period is over for the Crowmeole Lane traffic flow restrictions
