Newly installed poles for signs falling over!

Reported via iOS in the Parking signs category anonymously at 19:05, Mon 16 May 2022

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later

My neighbourhood has had new poles put in which will hold new parking restriction signs. The poles were put in last week 13/5/22. 3 on Grangecourt Road have / are falling over. 1 has fallen over completely (outside 9 Grangecourt Road) and 2 others are about to fall over and today they are moving with the gusts of wind. The situation is very dangerous as they could easily fall onto a car or person and do a lot of damage. The poles in question have not got cement in the hole to secure them they only have sandy earth. Please address this with urgency. You could be sued if the poles fall on a human or property and do damage. The crews hired to install the poles were obviously not trained they left them in a very dangerous state!
