These photographs were taken in the Al Majaz area, in Sharjah. The lamppost’s base is severely damaged and the post could fall at any time. Even a heavy wind can push it down.

People park their cars next to the post, as is visible in the photograph. I have also seen children playing in this area and there is a construction site next to the post. If God forbid the post falls, it can cause severe loss.

I request the concerned authorities to please take immediate action to avoid any mishap.
