New road sign blocking the pavement

Sent to Bristol City Council 17 hours, 27 minutes later

A new ‘one way’ illuminated road sign has been installed in the pavement on Lower Redland Road opposite the end of Greenway Road. It duplicates an existing ‘turn right’ sign at the end of Greenway Road. The attached first photo shows both signs. However, the new sign has been placed in the footway so that it blocks the pavement for pedestrians. This footway was widened to 2m as it is a route to St John’s School Annex on Lower Redland Road. But the new sign restricts the width to only 1.2m at a critical point, where there is no footway on the opposite side of the road. This route is regularly used by groups of small children moving between the two sections of the school, as well as by parents with small children and buggies. The new sign could have been installed at the rear of the pavement, where it is inset, thus also avoiding a telecoms access cover and potential underground cables (see second photo). However, given the existing ‘turn right’ illuminated sign and the ‘turn right’ arrow in the roadway, there seems little need for this additional sign. It should either be removed or re-sited so as not to block the footway.
