Council red-faced over ‘keep clea’ road marking
A COUNCIL has been left red-faced after its highway workers apparently ran out of space while painting road markings.
Residents in Manningtree have been chuckling at the high-profile error after “Keep Clea” – rather than “Keep Clear” – was painted on a town centre road in large white letters.
Essex County Council has pledged to sort out the problem.
A spokeswoman said: “Essex County Council Highways Department have been made aware of the error on South Street in Manningtree.
“The council can confirm that this will be fixed as soon as possible.”
