  • What is there to investigate ? It is now 69 days later in the last week in November, and the 200 yd and 100 yd signs are still facing in the wrong direction of travel. How much planning is required to twist the signs on the pole back into their correct position and tighten the large jubilee clip to stop it happening again

  • These signs are still facing the wrong way round and are now lit by car headlights travelling in the opposite direction. They were spun round by contractors leaning on them during the recent road re-surfacing. We watched them whilst stuck in the roadworks traffic back in September

  • This issue was reported 3 months ago and has still not been dealt with. Surely it is something that a man with a van, with flashing warning lights, a couple of cones and a spanner should be able to remedy in ten minutes. What is taking so long?

  • Situation remains the same as above which explains why vehicles racing from Lincoln to Burton Waters roundabout a breaking very hard to avoid vehicles coming out of Burton Waters. An accident waiting to happen. The countdown markers are there just need a simple swivel round. I say again an accident waiting to happen. This is a ten minute job.
