At the immediate entrance to Bourton Way from the A45 roundabout.

Issue: Articulated lorry drivers are still being tricked into thinking that Bourton Way is a through route. It's a dead end, where children play and lorries find it both dangerous and difficult to turn around without causing hazards and damage. The current road signs are inadequate. 1. Improve the signage, to make it clear at a very quick glance that Bourton Way is a no through road for articulated goods vehicles and their drivers should not enter. 2. Probably, ask sat nav companies to make it clear to all drivers approaching the Bourton Way roundabout from Northampton and heading east that they need the fourth exit, and not the third exit, to continue their journeys, if the stubby blind exit on the roundabout must be counted as an exit. (Also, not related, nearly all of the road signs on the A509 Wilby Way, Park Farm Way and Niort Way are overgrown or grubby.)

Road: A45
