  • Council ref: 817047 1st & 2nd photos: entering Taynton from Burford 3rd photo: leaving Taynton, going towards Burford. These are just a few of the signs. They have been washed so they are not just dirty and no 2 needs straightening. I will try to submit more photos after I have sent these as your update box only allows 3.

  • I have visited Taynton and make the following comments- Both bend warning signs are in need of replacement - I can add to my maintenance list. I would also question their need given the current speed limit and tortuous nature of the route - is there really a danger of someone travelling too fast and thus the bends becoming a danger? I did wash some green algae from a no through road sign and underneath the sign is still in good condition. A more thorough wash would be beneficial. The speed limit signing is present and correct despite a slightly unaesthetically pleasing lean of one post. This would not warrant any immediate action. I carry cleaning equipment on occasion so when next in the area I will see if I can do a more thorough job - unless helpful residents do so beforehand.
