Cross roads of Pink Road and Wardrobes Lane

The Major Road ahead sign at the top of Wardrobes Lane cannot be seen when driving to the crossroads. The sign needs to be moved away from the cross road and put further down the Wardrobes Lane 150 ft for example. This came to my attention when a car drove straight across Pink Road from Wardrobes Lane without stopping. We were a group of cyclists travelling alomg Pink Road when a small car drove at high speed straight across in to Lilly Bottom Road a cul de sac. The driver we assume obviously unfamiliar with the roads did not see any signage and drove straight across. We are lucky to be alive, 2 seconds faster and we would be dead. Foolishly we did not turn round and go to talk to the driver who would have had to stop in Lilly Bottom Road. The sign is at the junction rather than before it and cannot be seen as it is blocked by trees and bushes. The issue ahs presumably been like this for a long time
An officer will carry out an inspection within the next 10 working days and arrange to have the issue resolved as soon as possible after that.
