Kinky council workers put up the wrong road sign in Herne Bay


They had a night mare! Kinky council workers are ridiculed for calling Herne Bay in Kent on the street sign in & # 39; Horse Bay & # 39; have renamed

  • Kent County Council commissioned a road sign that was incorrectly located
  • Officials wanted to steer motorists towards the popular coastal town of Herne Bay
  • Instead, the sign that was put up told people that they were going to Horse Bay

A councilor apologized after incorrectly specifying the name of an area on a road sign.

Council workers were hired to erect a sign near Herne Bay in Kent, but unfortunately the metal plate said Horse Bay.

The sign was installed on Clapham Hill in Whitstable, Kent, and caused angry reactions from citizens because of the wasted resources.

Kent County Council workers erected this new road sign directing motorists to the nonexistent Horse Bay in place of the seaside resort of Herne Bay

An existing road sign approaching the intersection from a different direction correctly identified Herne Bay

One man, Iain Heatlie, said, “You had a job to do.

“But I can only imagine that the spell checker caused this.

He added, "It may be fun, but it's still a waste of money that the Council says there isn't much right now."

Kent County Council has warned locals that it may raise the council tax by five percent in the coming year.

However, on social media, people were quick to mock the advice.

One person named Mark suggested, "Somebody had a slut mare there."

Martine said, "Nine carat gold signage over there."

Maria raged: "What the hell."

Mary joked, "Don't get lost when you come here."

A Kent County Council spokesman said: “Unfortunately, a new sign up on Clapham Hill in Whitstable has been found to be incorrectly worded.

"We're going to temporarily put the correct wording on the sign today and then put a permanent patch on it."
