asked the Secretary of State for Transport what average period of time in months elapses before damaged road signs are repaired on the M1 between Wakefield and London.

The information to enable an average period to be calculated is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.Damaged road signs on motorways are repaired or replaced as soon as practicable. The period of time varies because, for example, most large direction signs are individual in design. The work can take some months before the new signs are in position.
