Partly detached sign, in danger of falling

Location: Cremer Street lamp column 8 outside Song Que restaurant.

The bottom of the two fittings holding the rail replacement bus sign to the lamp column has become detached, by the look of it as a result of corrosion (fitting not galvanised?). The remaining fitting looks similarly corroded so it might also break on a windy day soon, creating the potential for a head injury to a passing pedestrian.

Frankly, the lamp column strikes me as being overloaded with signage. An alternative and arguably more effective way of signposting Overground users to Kingsland Road for replacement buses might be to erect a suitable permanent sign on the wall of the viaduct facing Geffrye Street, eg above the "Cremer St E2" sign or thereabouts.
