That sculpture, that location. No problems with the actual sculpture, although the opportunists will carry on about it – probably generated by wishful thinking!

But I do have a major problem with its location, on a roundabout where drivers need to be on full alert.

A million years ago I spent some time as a trainee camera person at Traffic and Road Research, UK. A prime concern in making roads safe was to minimise what they called roadside furniture – anything that would distract the driver.

So in the interests of making Byron roads safe, please relocate said sculpture and replace it with 2m high bushes that will screen off oncoming headlights.

  1. At last a an evidence based response based . Although you failed to mention that the installation is nothing like its proposal image.
    With a roundabout that is way off to one side is a obstruction as J Davies points out.
    Why no explanation?
