[Update: #171403] [Image taken 4.7.21.] Rougier Street, York. Redundant sign ie clutter and a potential hazard. It’s been here since at least 13.6.21 – see: #170128. It is now attracting rubbish – in the form of a covid-19 facemask. The following are quotes from the Temporary Traffic Handbook.
9.3 Tidiness: safety, security, aesthetics
Sites should be kept orderly, with materials safely stored in an organised manner and contractors should make provision to promptly remove waste and litter from sites. Construction debris is a potential trip hazard to the workforce, or could be used as a missile or weapon during public disorder, and it has a detrimental impact on the appearance of the local street scene.
The corporate image and professionalism of a works promoter, contractor and TfL as the highway authority can be severely called into question when sites are untidy.
Street litter collecting within a site and along its boundaries, particularly within walkways and cycle lanes, should be removed. Not only is it unsightly but litter can present a hazard to more vulnerable road users...”
I believe all of this applies to this sign/this location. No-one has claimed it. Other images today see: #171368 and links.
