Highways signs left on pavement

I have received the following information from a resident: "For the last 18 months, I've been running past metal "stuff" left by some roadwork team. I've hauled red street cones next to it in the hope that it would be picked up at some point but someone merely removes the cones and leaves the offending metal. There are 2 old metal (iron?)bars/poles about a metre high, plus an old metal (iron?) diversion-sign frame measuring about 1.5m high and 1m across. They are resting on the old stone wall at the edge of St. Swithun's church hall, where the wall meets Cow Lane. They are very close to the pedestrian pavement there. Is there any chance the stuff can be removed?"

Please could this be looked into? There are also a number of road signs along Kennington Rd, which I assume will be removed once the resurfacing work is completed?

  • The signs have not yet been removed. These are very large ones from when the work was being undertaken on the ring road, and still have not been removed. Please could they be collected as soon as possible?
