LCC £125,000 Scheme Fails

Many will have been confused by the recently erected ER signs across the Lincolnshire Coast. My investigation has proved my original theory wrong – they are not directing motorists to the promised land of the East Riding.

ER Route 1

The Evacuation Route Signage in Lincolnshire  (click on the link – this is a must read) informs us that:

” ….. for public and responder safety and most effective use of responding resources, planners recommended the use of emergency evacuation route signage on all 13 identified routes, with a preference for permanent signage as being relatively cost effective and reinforcing community resilience.”

The signs are for an Evacuation Route. Who worked that out?


LCC have wasted £125,000 on this programme. I say wasted as it is believed the signs are not contained in the TSRGD2002 and as such are unlawful.

Putting their legality aside LCC must be questioned for spending £125,000 on a project motorists do not understand.

I will return to the issue of flooding on the Lincolnshire coast in the coming days.

Complaint To LCC

Sent: Saturday, November 28, 2015 8:42 AM
Subject: Complaint – ER Signage

Dear Sir/Madam,

Could I please refer you to

I would like to register two complaints against LCC:

  1. The signs are unlawful as they are not contained in the TSRGD2002
  2. The signs fail to give motorists the intended message and as such are a waste of tax payers money.

Kindest Regards,

Andy Strangeway
