Road signs display wrong A-road for Kington

Hereford Times: Where is Kington? This road sign incorrectly says that it is on the A4110. Where is Kington? This road sign incorrectly says that it is on the A4110.

MOTORISTS wanting to get to Kington from Hereford could find themselves scratching their heads.

The sign in Edgar Street says that the route to Kington is along the A4110.

The fastest way to the market town from the city is along the A4111 - as is shown on another sign in nearby Eign Street.

The A4110 starts on Three Elms Road and joins the Canon Pyon road through to Leintwardine.

Herefordshire Council press officer Michelle Morgan said the highways department was not aware of the situation, but contractors have been told to correct the information.

This is nothing new. The previous sign, which had been up for many years, said exactly the same thing!

Yes but now you have much longer to sit in the traffic and study it!
29 minutes from the bottom of edgar street to the new set of light's, almost as long as it takes to get to Worcester from Holmer roundabout

No wonder I ave never been to Kington!
I've tried to go there. God knows I've tried. The signs are preventing me. The blessed highways agency doesn't want me to go there.
Perhaps the good folk of Kington don't want poor people like me going to there. Well stuff em.
They can keep their Oak beamed black and white houses and their tea rooms and their dancing bears
