Waste service strike

A number of Tower Hamlets Council frontline waste service workers and street cleansers will be going on strike from 18 September to 1 October due to a national pay dispute.  

Despite the council working to maintain services for residents, the strike will impact collections and cleansing across the borough. We apologise in advance for the disruption this will cause.

Road markings & signage

We are responsible for maintaining road signs, road lines and markings, and street names in order to give clear and correct information to all road users. We are responsible for all adopted roads in the borough except red routes, which are the responsibility of Transport for London (TfL).

Street name signs

The council is responsible for:

  • ensuring that street name plates are provided and fitted in suitable positions (except for new developments - see below)
  • repair and maintenance of all street name plates.

New developments

In the case of new developments, the developer is responsible for erecting name plates to the council's specification.
