Obscured Road Signs on A51

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) category anonymously at 16:14, Tuesday 14 September 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

Driving from the A55 and across the A51 to home in Ripley, Derbyshire on Monday 13th September, we noticed that on approaching junctions and roundabouts, 9 out of 10 directional signs were obscured by vegetation and cannot be seen. We have also noticed this to be the case around most of the country, even before Covid, so this cannot be given as an excuse for lack of workers and not being able to carry out the necessary actions to rectify this problem.

    The A51 and A55 I cannot find near Ripley in Derbyshire. Also the map location given is incorrect. Please could you correct a new report with the correct location given on the interactive map.

    Kind regards Highways England
