Sign base in cycle lane, with speed limit sign removed from base & carefully placed flat on ground in cycle lane (with cone knocked over, likely to be hard to spot, especially if coming round the corner from Gamblins Rd)

Every working day since this report was made a City Care STMS at this site has stuck the speed limit sign back into the sign base, leaving it in the cycle lane. And then at the end of the working day they have taken the sign out of the base, leaving the sign base in the cycle lane. Given that these STMS’s are trained in all aspects of temporary traffic, it is disturbing that they seem to be blatantly ignoring best practice as set out in the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management; for instance C3.3.2 (Positioning of signs) which stipulates that “sign bases must not be left in place, without signs attached, in a manner that will be a hazard to any road user, including pedestrians and cyclists”.
