How do you know you would be able to see the sign at night Mr Firth?

The "sharp deviation " signs ON the roundabout of Junction 17 are
still missing though plenty of dis-used lamps remain.
There are new signs on the A56 just off the roundabout.

If you place a pointer on a place (it looks like a drawing pin) then
right click you get "directions to".

That is an example of ranting.

The main A629 has lots of newish signs saying things like "Ainley Top
53 casualties in 6 months" (Perhaps traffic lights on the roundabout ,
53 degrees 40' 9.73" N 1 degree 49' 34.33" W, might help), whereas
Blackley New Road, leading to the motorway, has the worst sign.
Perhaps a different agency is responsible?
