Odd signage at border. 5 metre long section of 30mph

Worship Street seems to have a 5 metre long section of 30mph with the rest being 20 mph. Maybe this is a signage mistake due to being on the border between Islington and Hackney (councils not talking to eachother properly?). In both directions there's a very prominent sign saying 30mph (end of previous restriction) and then 5 metres beyond on the opposite side of the junction, back to 20mph again. Traffic can't go north or south from this junction, so it can't apply to that.

  • They could just pull the signs down. Easy fix as far as I can see.

  • Oh I have actually had a reply about this. Missed it in my inbox for some reason. The reply from Hackney council says, they will take the signs down. Hurrah!

    Trouble is this email came to me 11th March 2013, and they haven't done it yet, so maybe they forgot about it.

  • It's been over a year. I guess they didn't manage to coordinate this complicated inter-council agreement to take down a couple of signs. I've sent a reminder email. Also here's a photo

  • Hackney council people rang to say that this will be fixed some time around November. She said currently there *is* a 30mph section because of Paul Street. This makes no sense actually given that Paul Street is one-way southbound only into the junction, and it's cycles only to the South of the junction... but no use trying to explain that over the phone.

    Anyway they're going to be making Paul St 20mph too in November at which point the signs would come down. Hurray!

  • There was a whole load of work done to the junction of Leonard Street further to the north, which is all completed (completed last year I think). The vague plan mentioned on the phone, was to look at the signage here during those works. But no... I went by this junction recently and the unnecessary speed limit signs are still up.
