TfL has been alerted to these issues by the London Borough of Lewisham and has taken the following actions: - The damaged lamp post outside 262 New Cross Road has been removed and replaced with a new, working street light; - Arrangements have been made to remove the newspaper dispenser outside 265 New Cross Road. TfL has previously removed unauthorised dispensers from this site on two occasions (in June 2008 and on 23 October 2008); - The large metal sheet on the footway outside 1-6 Fairlawn Mansions has now been investigated to ensure there was no defect below it, and it was removed on 5 November.
