An agreement has been reached to site interactive speed signage on the western approach to Rothbury, on the B6341 Rothbury to Thropton section.

Northumberland County Council will install the signage in the next few weeks and Rothbury Parish Council has agreed to take on the ongoing maintenance costs once the six-year warranty expires.

The interactive signage on the south-eastern approach to the village near Rothbury Middle School (B6342) is still being negotiated.

Interactive signage on the eastern approach to Rothbury near to Whitton View (B6341) is still being discussed and a solution will hopefully be forthcoming in the not too distant future.
