Street sign has collapsed.

Reported in the Street nameplates category anonymously at 14:56, Friday 22 May 2020

Sent to East Lindsey District Council 46 minutes later

The street sign had fallen off due to its support fastenings corrosion. Also the concrete support posts have corroded to beyond repair. Someone has lifted the sign up and fastened it in place with a bungie strap. This strap is hooked to a private wire fence. This is not a safe support and will definitely fall off again.

  • Knowing that the Covid-19 pandemic could have delayed this repair, now that holiday makers are around, this sign now has a higher risk in collapsing on people passing by.

  • I heard on Radio Lincs by the Highways agency that this fault should not have been reported on Fix My Street but should have gone direct to ELDC. Apparently if the public report such faults incorrectly, Fix My Street would normally forward the fault to the correct authority via email. As I reported this fault over 3 months ago, obviously forwarding this seems problematic ! I suggest Fix My Street update their system to explain what type of "street signs" are reportable via Fix My Street, especially as I originally reported this as an accident waiting to happen.

  • I have heard that this sign nearly fell on an old woman last week. Who is taking responsibility ?

  • As previously stated, the Highways Agency spoke about this on Radio Lincolnshire and they did admit that despite this issue being reported incorrectly, "they" would normally forward this to ELDC. In my eyes, it is the Highways Agency who have taken responsibility of this matter. Unfortunately this problem/defect has not been fixed !
