Arched columns about to bite the dust

These columns on the A459 between Dudley and Netherton are among the last remaining in the area. When these go the only ones remaining are a couple further along the A459 towards Gornal. All the other installations were replaced a couple of months ago.

Exit from A4100 northbound towards the B4173.JPG
The junction from the A4100 northbound to the B4173. (According to some maps, the roads don't quite touch, but these are the roads that connect them.) The A4100 northbound runs bottom to top of the left of the picture; on the right is a filter lane coming from the B4173 for left turns onto the A4100 southbound; and the main connection between the roads is visible in the centre of the picture, just underneath the green advertisement.
The B4173 approaching the A4100 multiplex.jpg
The B4173, looking northwards towards its multiplex with the A4100. To the left is a filter lane that connects to the A4100 southbound; the main junction with the A4100 is ahead (blocked from view here by a blind summit).
Railway bridge on the B4173.jpg
The railway bridge over the B4173, looking southbound. This gives something of an impression of how hilly this road can be.
The B4173 over the Stour Valley.jpg
The B4173, looking southbound over the valley through which the River Stour runs. The road runs sharply downhill to the river, then sharply uphill afterwards, providing this excellent view.
Lyde Green signed as the B4174.jpg
The junction with the B4173 and Lyde Green. Lyde Green is signposted as the B4174; however, according to most maps (and the signs at the other end of the road), it is unclassified.
View from the B4173 southbound.jpg
The B4173 climbs steep hills in both directions, especially northbound. At top of the northbound climb, you can turn round and see this view along the B4173 southbound.
The B4174 TOTSO at Lyde Green.jpg
The B4174 northbound turns left (and southbound turns right) at Lyde Green (which is to the right in the image, which was taken from the south of the junction). This junction is quite confusing, because a sign (most likely a flag sign saying 'B4174') pointing down the southbound seems to have been removed, and because Lyde Green is (probably incorrectly) signed from the other end as the B4174. The result is that all three roads here are signed as the B4174 at the other end, but only one is signed as the B4174 at the junction.
Curve on the B4174.jpg
A sharp bend to the right on the B4174, which has a number of sharp bends; this image was taken looking northbound. The picture also shows a crossing of the River Stour, near the centre.
The north end of the B4174.jpg
The north end of the B4174, at its junction with the A4100.

6675.JPG Dudley to Merry Hill junction.jpg
Around Holly Hall and Woodside in Dudley, coming from Brierley Hill. This is just at the junction where Stourbridge Road (A461) and Highgate Road (A4036) meet. Picture taken in February 2019.
8528.JPG Urbis Axia 2 Old Column Dudley.jpg
Trinity Road, Dudley. Old 1950/60s style columns with new Urbis Axia 2 lanterns which are LED. The original lanterns probably would of been SOX/LPS.

Bilston Street, Sedgley. Old 1960/70s style columns with new Urbis Ampera Midi lanterns which are LED. The original lanterns probably would of been SOX/LPS.
8530.JPG Thorn Civiteqs Old Column Coseley.jpg
Shaw Road, Coseley. Old 1970s style column and Thorn Civiteq lanterns which are LED. The original lantern on the old column was a GEC Z9554 (SOX/LPS), and the more modern post-top would have had an Industria/WRTL Arc 80 (SON/HPS).
IMG.8888.JPG 1 chevron Holophane VMax 12m columns.jpg
Along Stourbridge Rd heading into Dudley. This section is a duel carriageway and an important busy main-road, yet strangely the street lights are 12m post-top columns but with very small LED 1-chevron Holophane V-Max lanterns, which is quite strange. Previously I think the lanterns were SON/HPS and much bigger than these new LED ones.
IMG.8080.JPG Urbis Ampera Midi Thorn R2L2 Dudley.jpg
Just coming off Scotts Green Island and heading into Dudley town centre. The roundabout is lit with Urbis Ampera Midis and the road is lit with Thorn R2L2s, both LED types. Previously the old lanterns were flat-glass Thorn Rivieras (SON/HPS) which got replaced in 2018.
IMG 8665.JPG A491 between Stourbridge and Kingswinford.jpg
Heading up the hill to Kingswinford, which is along High Street (A491) coming from Stourbridge. This is also just at the junction for the B4180 as well, which goes to Brierley Hill, to the right.
IMG 8642.JPG A458 in Lye.jpg
Coming into Lye along High Street (A458), heading from Halesowen to Stourbridge. The lanterns seen in the background are Urbis Ampera Maxis.
