A Colchester Councillor has said that vintage road signs around the Town are better repaired than replaced.
Councillor Dave Harris recently took out his wire brush and tools to repair road signs around the Berechurch area.
“Rather than call for Council to replace the signage and lose some of our historic heritage signs, I went out to the major junction at Mersea Road/ Berechurch Road to wire brush, clean, and repaint the sign” said Councillor Harris.
“You can see the difference!” he said.
Some local authorities have reported paying up to £200 to resit and replace road name signs.
