Speed signs cleaned

ROAD signs in Henley have been cleaned following appeals by the Mayor.

ROAD signs in Henley have been cleaned following appeals by the Mayor.

Councillor Elizabeth Hodgkin had repeatedly asked Oxfordshire County Council officials, which is responsible for roads, to wash the speed limit signs on Reading Road going out of the town towards Shiplake because she said they couldn’t be read by drivers.

At Tuesday’s meeting of the town council, the Mayor said she hoped that other entrances to the town would now also be looked at. “I have noticed that some of the signs on the Reading Road towards Shiplake have been cleaned,” she said. “Now I would like to see them done on other approaches — there are quite a lot of 30mph signs. Dirty signs are one of my bugbears.”

Town and county councillor David Nimmo Smith said he would speak to Keith Stenning, the county council’s area steward, to see what money was left in his locality budget.

“I will check if they can go out with a squeegee and get them done,” he added.
