Many thanks to the residents who contacted me about a pole with parking sign on Lochee Road that had fallen over - not vandalism - rust at its base!
I contacted the City Council about it to get the old pole removed and a new one installed and have received the following helpful feedback :
"The sign and pole
will have to be replaced and reinstated as the sign is there to inform drivers
of the parking regulations that are currently in place.
The Roads Maintenance Partnership will have to reinstate a new pole to replace the rusty one."
