Maintenance of a beautiful municipal structure

Pedestrian crossing with tactile paving, High Street E17, junction with Hoe Street. Yesterday.

The two men in the white van, whose masculinity would have been impugned by having to park in the conventional fashion, are working for Adshel, who boast

We build beautiful municipal structures that both beautify your city as well as provide an opportunity for advertisers to build their brand recognition.

They seemed to be replacing fluorescent strip lighting for a panel advertising Lucozade Energy, a fizzy sugar-laden drink produced by GlaxoSmithKline plc, the ingredients of which are Carbonated Water, Glucose Fructose Syrup (24%) , Orange juice from Concentrate (5%), Citric Acid, Preservatives (Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Bisulphite), Stabilisar (Acacia Gum), Caffeine (0.012%), Antioxidant (Ascorbic Acid), Flavourings (unspecified) and Colour (Beta-Carotene) (source)

The last time I encountered an employee of Adshel he was obstructing a cycle lane.

Adshel and the London Borough of Waltham Forest – working together to discourage walking and to promote sugar dependency and obesity.
