Bollards of London (Brixton SW9)...
I'm in South West London, Brixton, Shannon Grove SW9 where I've come across this Zebra stripped concrete bollard. In fact this piece of street furniture is looking tired and I'm sure it has a few tails to tell if only a few scrapes with the odd car or two.
Now here lies the quandary should a local council who is strapped for cash really be planting bollards all over the borough for once you plant you need to maintain or do you just plant and let them decay for want of a better word.
In fact what is the purpose of this bollard for it sits on this part of Shannon Grove in complete isolation merely merging with the background because of the decaying paint job and lack of maintenance.
