Road Sign Restoration

A697 road sign restoration

I’ve known about this road sign on the A697 in Crawley Dene for a few years. It’s been at the side of the road, partially knocked down the embankment and in a bit of a sorry state.

We took advantage of having the tractor and the road being shut yesterday, managed to get it out and it’s now in storage.

We will have a look at getting it restored then put back.

This is very good news for the residents of Powburn which is a speeding hot spot.
