week the road was dug up alongside the unlit pedestrian refuge in Abbey Road, a conduit
installed , and the road surface left in a poor state. Over the hot weekend the pipe
drooped across the carriageway already too narrow for buses to pass each other
safely. I had thought that the bollard might not reach its first birthday in an
unlit state but Bexley councils continued negligence may prove me wrong.
Today I watched the traffic swerving to avoid the conduit so I have secured it in the hole behind the exposed kerb stones.
