More signs installed to help motorists

The council’s transport and highways team has added three new variable message signs to ensure motorists are informed on updates that may affect their journeys.

The additional signs were installed at the junction of Farnham Road and Broad Oak Court, on Stoke Poges Lane near Northern Road, and at Sussex Place near Dolphin Road in May.

The new signs were placed at either a main route or at a decision making point; aiming to further assist car users while out on the road.

Councillor Martin Carter, cabinet member for planning and transport, said: “The safety and peace of mind of motorists in and around the borough is of the utmost importance to us.

“We have these signs in place to offer advanced warning of any upcoming issues on key routes, so drivers can stay informed and conveniently alter their journeys if they need to.”

There are now 11 signs across the borough to inform drivers on everything from major traffic incidents and road closures to public events such as park events and parades.

In the future, the signs will incorporate road safety messages that will tie in with national campaigns such as preventing drink-driving and using mobiles while driving.
