Signs might need a rethink

It’s great to have the link road finally finished and open, but I have to just make a couple of comments about the road signs.

The one just before the Hillside Road turn says local route and buses only.

So people are still using it as a local route, surely it should have said access for residents and buses only.

It is still being used as rat run and I can’t see any way for it to be policed.

Also, at the entrance to the bus lane there is a ‘no entry’ sign. It is set further in, does anyone have any suggestions?

After all you are actually running a red light using that lane because it is meant for buses only to trip the lights and residents turning right from Salisbury Road, although having the right of way, risk getting hit by oncoming traffic. Maybe a camera on the bus lane light?

I think the road signs need a rethink.
