A sign of confusion for Blackpool drivers?

Locals have been left baffled after a sign was put up in Layton saying ‘Welcome to Blackpool’.

The dot matrix display has been positioned on Plymouth Road and is confusing drivers approaching the roundabout.

In addition, the display board conceals a cycle lane sign.

Blackpool Council says the sign is one of a few going up around town advising drivers of parking space availability. The current greeting is just a holding message while engineers complete the work.
