  • This is still an issue! It is very confusing for drivers and is causing people to swerve at the last minute when they realise the bridge is actually open. I have also seen drivers become confused who have followed the diversion then as the other signs are not in place for the bridge swing diversion, are not sure where to go to and how to get back to where they want to be.

    Even just turning the flashing lights off the broken sign would be an improvement.
