From the junction of Gorell Road onto the A40 toward the Speed Camera the road signs are predominantly overgrown, hidden, part faded or completely faded and the speed camera itself and speed camera warning sign itself are almost completely obscured. This might make the road unenforcable for actions against drivers breaking the speed limit, especially as the speed warning signs for traffic leaving Gorell Road and the new housing development are almost unreadable, and drivers may incorrectly assume it's 60mph as it's a dual carriageway with grass separator and armco barrier at the start. By the time the first 50mph repeater sign comes into view before the hidden GATSO camera it's too late to brake if travelling too fast.

  • As yet Bucks CC not done much, there are illegal and illegible speed restriction signs along this road, plus many are still obscured, although winter leaf fall is making them more obvious. To consider attending to maintenance only when the road is not enforceable is a big statement, it's the law to comply
