Redundant Traffic Sign Posts

Just had the following from the City Council - any suggestions, please be in touch:

The City Council has a modest residual budget allocated for the removal of redundant traffic sign posts; (ie. those not carrying any sign at all).

This budget has been in existence for some time and it is essential that the remaining balance be used during the current financial year.

Ideally I would arrange for a City-wide survey to be undertaken to locate redundant posts but depleted staffing resources preclude this at present.

I am therefore seeking your assistance in identifying any redundant sign posts within your Ward so that I can arrange for their removal.

Please give as much information as possible as to the location of any posts which you can identify; eg. relating to a house number or the junction of two roads; so that the Council's contractor can readily identify the item in question.

Finally, I would reiterate that I am looking for posts which are totally redundant rather than those carrying signs which might be considered redundant; the County Council has only agreed to the removal of posts, not signs.

Update: My first suggestion, remove this redundant lighting pole from Cherry Hinton Road:

When Google have finished their street survey, perhaps someone could whip up a quick application to spot them... :-)
