LOCALS may have been left scratching their heads over some confusing signs on the corner of Great Eastern Highway and Epsom Avenue in Ascot.

Some of the directions are pointing the wrong way, with Middleton Park and Redcliffe Park some kilometres in the opposite direction.

The signs instead point towards Gould Reserve.

City of Belmont acting chief executive Robin Garrett said Claude Outdoor have a contract with the City to install illuminated street signs at prescribed locations.

“The contract allows the City of Belmont to utilise the ‘community message’ panel at the bottom of the sign for direction to an appropriate facility or in this case, a park,” Mr Garrett said.

“This issue has been brought to the attention of Claude Outdoor who are in the process of making adjustments to the sign so that the panels are pointing the right way.”
