The state of the roads - Croydon
This is the stump of a lampost which has been fatally injured in a road traffic accident and has been bandaged with yellow tape to prevent anyone getting near the electrics. On one short journey today from Croydon to West Wickham, I spotted no less than eight stumps like this. It turns out that they are on a red route and that responsibility for them rests with Transport for London (TfL).
Here are the locations:
- Fairfield Roundabout - near the Fairfield Halls
- Addiscombe Road - near junction with Elgin Road
- Shirley Road - near entrance to Whitgift Trinity School
- Wickham Road - outside No. 17
- Wickham Road - diagonally opposite Shirley Library
- Wickham Road - outside No. 395
- Wickham Road - outside No. 421
- Wickham Road - outside No. 590
