On streetlight entering Catford one-way system, travelling towards Woolwich (A205) or Downham/Bromley (A21), incoorect 20 sign has replaced previously correct 30 sign.towards.

Reported via mobile in the Street Light - Equipment damaged, pole leaning category anonymously at 18:41, Mon 6 December 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3163498.

On streetlight, previous 30mph sign has incorrectly been replaced by a 20mph sign. The speed limit on the A205 towards Woolwich, and the A21 towards Downham/Bromley is still 30. The sign therefore needs correcting back from 20 to 30 please. Many thanks.

  • Wrong signs?? 20mph change of speed signs but no following sign for Brownhill Road, Bromley Road and Catford Road all for-mentioned roads are 30mph. There are no speed signs to change the speed. Have you made a mistake as there is a 30 sign before the speed trap camera SE6 4JD this is a 20mph road in Rushey Green on to Lewisham High Street?

  • This is not a mistake that the sign towards Bromley/Downham and Woolwich should be 30. It is placed on a one way section of Brownhill Road (eastbound) that leads on to 30mph roads. It originally showed 30 when first installed about six months ago, following the change of Rushey Green and Lewisham High Street/Molesworth Street to 20. It was to show the change from 20 to 30 when heading out of Rushey Green and onto Brownhill Road (Catford one-way system). A contractor has mistakenly changed it to 20 following my reports about lack of 20 signage on both speed cameras and the A21 Road itself between Catford and Lewisham. The sign in Brownhill Road on the A205 eastbound should be recorrected back to 30.
