Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later.
Council ref: 480827.
There needs to be a new sign warning of deer. There is a deer herd down the Stainfield road that regularly runs out onto the A15 towards Bourne. The speed limit is 60mph which is dangerous because of the deer and the double junction. I have seen the deer nearly every evening for the last 2 weeks so just an accident waiting to happen.
Thanks for letting us know about your issue with an unlit road sign. We will look into this and let you know what we find within the next 14 days. You can find out more about road sign maintenance on our website

We’re sending you this message to let you know that we’ve assessed the road in relation to the deer and there are so many deer in the Lincolnshire countryside that Lincolnshire County Council policy is not to erect further signage. Deer are a normal feature and are to be expected on our roads. They are also unpredictable and we cannot sign all locations, as they do not remain on a single location permanently. Thank you for reporting this matter.
State changed to: No further action
