  • Photos taken at 2.15pm on Friday 10th December. The person who uploaded report 3168187 quotes: "It has been reported before and deemed safe BUT there is no reflector, no sign to keep left and no indication that the large lump of concrete in the road is even there. I have driven past it this evening and come very close to driving into it as it is invisible in the dark and appears out of nowhere. It is definitely not safe and needs immediate remedial work". I can confirm that it is indeed invisible in the dark.
