New traffic signs

Started by: mortarmillbill (728)

Has anyone else noticed the new traffic signs at the motorway roundabout at Bryn.

One shows what looks like a cloud with the letter C in the middle of it and underneath it says Zone Ends.

Can anyone explain what they mean.

I agree with the 'sentiment' of wanting clean air in our towns and cities, but by doing it in such an 'authoritarian' and 'draconian' (I'v swallowed a dictionary) manner, as far as I am concerned they can go screw themselves

I've noticed those too Tom, all over the place, they look the same as the speed cameras attached to lamp posts on the A580 near Manchester but those are painted yellow.

Smooth Radio as a contest to win an electric Mini and they will give you also £500 towards a charging station at home I thought you could just plug into a outside socket with a car adaptor

There's a new camera appeared on Mesnes Road between the Brocket and the Cherry Gardens. Quite high up pointing towards Wigan. What are they supposed to record/enforce ?

Spotted another one of those lamp post cameras on Wigan Road near Ashfield Park facing up the hill to Standish.

What are they, and why are they being put up everywhere all of a sudden?

Angelwood, you could have a point with your previous post.

Maybe this is it. Sorry I can't do links. If anyone can, please do.

Has anyone noticed the catapult wires strung across numerous roads over the last few weeks? Some serious traffic census being done by the look of things.

I saw a man today working on the camera in Poolstock Lane, On the side of the van it says, ' National data recovery ', So there's a bit more info to add to the equation.

With the amount of roadworks,the catapults and cameras, has anyone seen anywhere a press release telling us why?

All the cost of this, plus the people to run it, watching cameras, checking payments, taking payments, plus the pay and public sector pensions...

For what?

Cost will be passed on to the consumer, food, fuel, taxis, amazon, etc. etc.

Why is no-one complaining? I have written to my useless MP.
