I NOTICED two 30mph signs at the exit of Harrogate Close. This leads to a section of Burtonwood Road closed to traffic 350 yards to the right; 150 yards to the left is a roundabout.

This small, less than half-a-mile section has three 30mph signs on each side of the road. These two, plus the two about to be positioned at the exit of Bicknell Close, brings the total to 10. It is good to know that in these austere times someone has sufficient spare cash to waste it on superfluous street clutter.

Maybe this is the way to get the country back on its feet, creating unnecessary work for the unemployed.
