Signal head pointing the wrong way
Reported via desktop in the Damage - pole leaning / equipment detached from pole/facing the wrong direction category by Trevor Parsons at 16:44, Tuesday 31 May 2022
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3564664.
On the pole located on the north-west corner of Whitechapel Road and Vallance Road, the signal head which should be pointing south towards New Road is instead currently pointing east.
Interestingly, it turns out that this signal head has been pointing the wrong way for many months, as shown in the third of the three photos accompanying a nearby defect reported back in January 2022: ( https://www.fixmystreet.com/ report/ 3223219 )
