I went out for a route inspection of my stretch of Regional Route 30 between Thetford and Weeting today. I found a few bits of work to be done.
First, some of the temporary signs were in poor condition. I replaced one in the Market Place in Thetford that had been scratched and had one corner pulled off. I also removed a sign at the north end of Rectory Road in Weeting that was looking a bit the worse for wear and but was superfluous to requirements.
A few signs were being obscured by growing vegetation, which I was able to cut back. There was one sign just before the junction with the C622 in Santon Downham, one where the route joins Gashouse Drove from St Benedict’s Road in Brandon, and one and where Peppers Close meets Rectory Road in Weeting.
Finally, I was able to replace the direction arrows on a couple of the signs with one of the new advanced turn arrows, which have just been made available by Sustrans. There was one sign just before the turning from Downham Way into The Paddocks in Brandon, and one just before the turning off the C873 into Peppers Close in Weeting.
