Arthur Road Width Restriction...
Here we are at Arthur Road in the London Borough of Merton and in an area better known has Wimbledon.
Smack bang in the middle of Arthur Road is a width restriction and within the middle of the traffic island that forms the centre part of this restriction is the oddest looking "keep left" traffic bollard that I've seen or found within the capital/London.
The traffic bollard has a square base that then tapers upwards in a cylindrical fashion. We find vertical orange/yellow stripes around the column area topped with a circular face "keep left" sign. I have to say this again this is a complete one off plastic traffic bollard.
Considering we are only hundreds of yards away from Wimbledon Village this piece of street furniture is not only ugly but shows the local council up to be a little lazy at the very least. If councils are going to plant this sort of stuff upon streets/roads the very least they can do is maintain the street furniture.
