Road markings and signs
We are responsible for maintaining and improving signs and lines, street furniture and street name plates.
Street name plates
We are responsible for ensuring that street name plates are provided and fitted in suitable positions.
As well as helping people to find their way around, name plates are essential in helping the Emergency Services to find locations as quickly as possible.
If you notice any damaged, missing or illegible street name plates, please contact the Street Care Call Centre on 020 7926 9000, or email email@example.com.
