No Entry Sign Tampering

Reported in the Sign (unlit) category anonymously at 13:16, Saturday 13 July 2019

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 4 minutes later. Council ref: 353455.

The 'No Entry' Sign which controls access to/ from Newark Road to the shops has frequently been tampered with, the sign being reversed. I've passed twice today for example within one hour and each time the sign is facing a different way. Which way is the permitted direction of travel? Please have the signage made tamper-proof? Could the Agency also give some consideration toward closing this gap altogether as turning traffic impedes the already congested Newark Road traffic flow within this light controlled area. Or if not, put some road markings down ('AHEAD ONLY') preventing Right turning traffic from Newark Road Westbound direction waiting in the outside lane in the middle of two sets of traffic lights, prevented from doing so by oncoming, heavy, traffic, into the shopping area. This turning traffic is also a risk to pedestrians using the light controlled crossing at this junction as such traffic is frequently stuck between the lights waiting for a gap, safe or otherwise, to turn in to the shops directly across the pedestrian crossing route. I've witnessed a few near misses.
