Also, does anyone know if any of the signs in the photos are allowed in the TSRGD?

I cannot see the timeplates being associated with the no left turn signs.

There has to be some doubt as to whether this (attached) is a sign authorised in the TSRGD for one simple reason. Does the 7am to 10am plate apply to the no left turn or the 30mph speed limit? If I were an unscrupulous motorist caught speeding by the speed camera outside the hours posted on the time plate, I would definitely argue that I was confused by the sign.

And as for the ones that apparently light up, is there provision for them in TSRGD at all? I seem to remember we had a similar thing with some signs in Brent and we concluded that they were not lawful, but I can't remember why we came to that conclusion.

My brain hurts!

It's even more confusing if you look at the sign for No Right Turn if you're approaching from Putney on Google Street View - it's completely different to this one!

The lady who spoke to me when I was photographing the junction was of the opinion that the No Left Turn sign was too far from the junction (amongst other things). Is there a minimum or maximum distance in TSRGD?

If I was a sneaky wea$el, I'd lay off enforcement for a few weeks/months, and then send a child protection vehicle down there - Kerching!

I managed to get down to this junction a couple of times this week while the No Entry signs were in operation, and saw absolutly no sign of enforcement being used and no contraventions either.

My previous assesment of the signs may have been wrong - now that I've actually seen them lit up, they are very obvious, in fact, I could imaggine them to be quite dazzling at 7am later in the year when it's still dark.

I think they would be ideal for the hours of darkness but I might be concerned as to their visibility in bright sunlight (for two days of the year.)

Appealing to the council is like playing chess with a pigeon. You might be a chess grand master but the pigeon will always knock all the pieces over, shit on the board and then strut around triumphantly.

It was quite sunny when I went down there and they were perfectly visible to me.

Does that mean we've now had our summer?  ;D

Been down here a few times now, and have yet to see any form of Enforcement.
