Illegible roadsign

Reported in the Sign issue category anonymously at 11:55, Sunday 6 September 2020

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

A1 southbound, approaching A52 junction near Grantham - the main junction sign is almost illegible in the dark. On the sign, white line for A1 and diverging arrow for A52 can be seen, but destination name (Nottingham, Grantham) and road number (A52) cannot be seen. Not sure if lighting has failed, or if reflective surface has worn away.
