Whoops! Wandsworth road signs point the wrong way

From incorrect signs to Picasso-like cycle lanes, Wandsworth has its fair share of incorrect signage.

In Battersea, opposite Lavender Hill Magistrates Court, two signs have appeared which seem to be pointing out Clapham and Wandsworth are in the wrong direction.

A council spokesman said: “The contractor has installed one of the new pedestrian signs incorrectly.

"It’s very simple to correct and is now being put right.”

Meanwhile in Lombard Road, Battersea, a wonky cycle lane appeared a few weeks ago which was likened to a Henri Matisse painting by BBC Radio 2 presenter Jeremy Vine.
