Roadworks signs causing an obstruction

Reported via desktop in the Sign (unlit) category anonymously at 15:06, Monday 20 September 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 405537.

There have been some road closed signs placed on the b1189 - these are covering the left hand sign of the road as you turn in from the a153. I believe these have been placed for information regarding a road closure further up the road, but these signs are actually misleading as it suggests the whole road is closed which it is not. The other issue is, as they have been placed so they are actually in the road on a junction, it is rather difficult to actually turn onto the b1189 from the a153. I sat there for 5 minutes at approx. 14:30 waiting for the cars turning on the a153 to go before I could turn in, meaning I was stopping traffic that wanted to continue on the a153. This is going to cause no end of problems, particularly at school times and rush hours, especially if there is a large vehicle, e.g. lorry or tractor on the other side of the road meaning there is no room for other vehicles to pass. These signs surely cannot be left here until the road re-opens (expected to be 24th Dec unless it is delayed), as somebody is bound to force their way through and cause a collision. Please could the decision to place these signs here be reviewed as this is already causing issues and they have only be put there this morning, and in reality they do not actually need to be there when the road closure is actually a mile further down the road.
