Trip hazard on New Cross Road at the crossing near the junction with Tanner's Hill

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2405195.
Comments: I would like to report a trip hazard on New Cross Road at the crossing near the junction with Tanner's Hill and opposite Deptford High Street.
Due to roadworks temporary orange bollards have been fitted in the road to direct traffic lanes.
One of the black bollard bases has been fitted on the road by the crossing - there is no orange bollard in it, (presumably because its in the middle of the crossing).
As the bollard base is black it is the same colour as the road and difficult to see, especially in the dark!
I tripped over it when crossing and fell over right in the middle of the road so would like to make you aware before someone else is hurt badly.
Thank you for your report. This will now be investigated by our team and we will update on progress within 10 days. If the issue you have reported is an emergency we will aim to update you on progress within 24 hours

In regards to the previous comment, on the 19th of November, my mum also tripped and fell quite harshly over one of the black bollard bases situated in the road crossing near Jennie's cafe, from the highstreet to tanners hill.
It was getting dark, and as there are no streetlights illuminating that crossing she could not see the obstruction.
In her fall she hit her head and suffered quite a bit of damage to the muscle and tissue in both her arms.
Local residents helped her to the doctor's surgery on the other side of the road where medical professionals advised an ambulance to be called on fear of concussion and possible fracture/broken bone.
My mum spent 6 hours in A&E and is still currently suffering due to the damaged muscle pain and mobility issues which as limited her ability to do most tasks.
