Cllr: 'The council is too slow in replacing give way sign'
A GIVE way sign which has been broken for a year has raised concerns about the safety of a road junction.
The sign at the crossroads at The Peacock pub in Bolter End was knocked down last September and has been reported a number of times by parish councillor, Alan Simmons.
But the sign is still lying in the verge, meaning there is no give way sign on the left as cars drive on Bolter End Lane onto Finings Road.
Cllr Simmons said: "I was told at one stage they have priorities. I said if it is not a priority surely the give way sign wouldn't be there in the first place?"
The sign also has 30mph and 40mph speed limit signs on it.
His wife, Mary, said: "It is still lying in the grass. This is a crossroads which has had fatalities on it. This is a main road and it is very dangerous."
Dan Elworthy, from Transport for Buckinghamshire, said: "The give way sign has been delivered to the junction, but has not been erected. On inspection, the local area technician noticed the missing sign yesterday [Wednesday] and will be investigating this situation and will be resolving as soon as possible."
