Is it just me or has anyone else noticed an alarming increase in utterly pointless TTL's?
just recently on a dead flat, straight bit of unclassified road out of a rural village in East Sussex there was a set of these that, and I kid you not, the lights were a whole TWO METRES apart. They had removed a drain that was ON THE GRASS VERGE not even on the carriageway, and had these irrelevant "Health and Safety" TTL's.
Now some 20 metres before these lights is the edge of the village where cars are parked on both sides of the road. And would you believe it,,,,,,,,everyone gets past.
Now anyone that knows the Hawkhurst to Cranbrook road will know that you get 2 large vehicles traveling in opposing directions it can cause a bit of a PITA, but it always works out. So why, 1/2 way down the hill did they decide to use another set of completely unnecessary TTL's that TOTALLY fouled things up, that AGAIN were unmanned and stretched for a WHOPPING 3 metres (about the length of a large car)
THEN on a 5 mile stretch of, again unclassified, road between Tenterden and Cranbrook there were SEVEN sets if the infernal menace! Only ONE of which was apparently 'necessary' as it was on a blind bend and the so-called 'works' took up a fair old stretch (not that there was anyone actually DOING any work)
BLOODY H&S CRAP!!!!!
