RESIDENTS say they have been driven loopy by eight outsize 20mph signs painted in their tiny cul-de-sac.
Those living on the single-lane road say they are ugly and a “total waste of money”.
“You can’t get to 20mph. Why do it?”
“It’s absolutely crazy. It’s bizarre. We can’t believe it.”
Tracey said: “There must have been a team of four or five guys on one stencil and literally they must be trying to use the paint up.
“They turned up for half an hour, forty-five minutes and went.”
Tracey says none of the residents were consulted before they started painting the sign.
Tracey added: “Apparently the guys doing it are getting a lot of abuse from people because they’re saying what the hell are you doing, why are you putting that here, it’s a block turning and they’re just told where to put them.
“What on earth were they thinking?
“It’s a council horror story.”
The London Borough of Waltham Forest, which painted them in Hurst Close, Chingford, said the signs cost £60 each and it was sticking to government rules on size.
