Signage too close to temporary lights

Hello, Just wanted to report that the signage for the temporary lights going OUT of Henley (and past Badgemore Golf course) is far too close to the lights. There is a bend in the road and when you get around this the roadside has the signs in very short succession leaving about 1 second to react. I have been seen numerous drivers slamming on their brakes (as have I) and I am just worried that someone is going to have an accident.

  • Hello, The temporary traffic lights have been put up again in the same place, and the signage has been put up again in the same way, leaving no time to react to a red light when coming around the corner. As it is a 40mph road it is very hard to stop in time. Please could someone move the signage further towards the town to give road users much more time to stop?
