Missing one way signs on the street lamps after replacement of the lamps

6 weeks ago I sent in the following message about cars going the wrong way down Thorncliffe Road daily. The street lamps had been replaced but the one way signs had not. Street lighting and Steve Axtell were in touch with each other about this quite quickly but nothing has happened. Two large cars were seen yesterday afternoon at different times going, both quite fast, the wrong way down the road. There is an accident waiting to happen again here (one has already happened). PLEASE can we have the signs back? Thank you. "Thorncliffe Road is a one way road, the only sign for drivers turning in is at the entrance from the Banbury Road, now obscured (see photo 1) , the others in the road, visible as you drive down it seem not to have been replaced when the street lamps were changed. We have recently logged motor vehicles driving the wrong way down the road, some after doing a three point turn in the road, and it is at least one or two every day, only one day had none reported. There should be a sign on the lamp-post outside numbers 5 and 7, please could one be attached to it as soon as possible before a vehicle driving in to the street from the Banbury Road either collides with a vehicle going the wrong way with risk of injuries. The one sign that is there also needs clearing of branches and leaves. Thank you."
