Speed signs along the A180 would make for a safer dual carriageway
THERE has been much publicity in the media recently regarding the reduction of speed limits for motorists in the area, including that stretch of the A180 dual carriageway, between the Pyewipe and Lock Hill roundabout.
In all the years I have driven home on this stretch (I worked at the former Tioxide plant) I have seen several near-misses and indeed, bad accidents caused by drivers reaching the bridge over Alexandra Dock, presumably many were drivers unfamiliar with the road, suddenly meeting the 30mph limit sign at the bridge, after driving fast along here, quite legally.
Therefore, I have never understood why more signs, warning drivers to reduce their speed, were not prominent along here, which is, after all, the main entry into Grimsby and Cleethorpes.
Take the Laceby bypass (A18). As you approach Grimsby from Morrisons roundabout. There have been, for a long time now, ample large signs warning drivers to reduce their speed. Why have the same sort of signs never been erected along the A180? I'm sure that if this had been done in the past, as a cautionary warning, we would have had a safer stretch of dual carriageway. It's never too late, either!

The Telegraph Says:
A good point, speed signs, especially those that flash at drivers, do alert and remind. However is it not a case that some people will simply ignore all attempts to show them down! Comment on this at www.thisisgrimsby.co.uk
