Traffic island next to wooden bus shelter on A416 Chesham Road in the middle of Ashley Green, near to the crossroads with Hog Lane & two Dells Lane

Reported via desktop in the Sign problem category anonymously at 10:35, Tuesday 23 February 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

There is a raised "Keep Left" sign on the traffic island. At the weekend, it was caught by a passing fixed mobile home on the back of a low loader. This turned the sign through 90 degrees so it is no longer visible to traffic from either direction. The "Keep Left" bollards below it are so caked in dirt from the road that they are virtually invisible as well - especially at night. There is a high risk that the island will be struck by a vehicle if these faults aren't fixed quickly. In addition, the road either side of the traffic island is thick with accumulated mud. This washes down into the gutter each time it rains and then gets splashed onto the front paths of adjacent houses (see photo). This has to be dug out every couple of weeks. Please clean the road and adjacent pavement which is also thick with dirt splashed up from the road.
