The Vanishing

Forest Road at the junction with Woodstock Road in upper Walthamstow. See that enigmatic black pole on the corner? It used to support a solar-powered speed sign, which flashed all day long as drivers raced through this residential area at lawless speeds. A couple of years ago the sign vanished and the pole has been there ever since. You'd think someone in this crap Council would have ensured that the sign (presumably removed for maintenance or repair) was put back as soon as possible. But that's 'road safety' for you - as neglected in this Borough as everything else.
