A Load of Bollards is a project by A. Johnson, a photographer with retinitis pigmentosa - an eye condition that affects 25,000 families in the UK. In this slideshow he demonstrates the prevalence of poorly managed street repairs and roadworks in London, and the hazards they cause for visually impaired pedestrians. His aim is to encourage more care and consideration for disabled pavement users when planning and delivering repairs.

All photos were taken in London in October 2009 with the support of Liz Orton, as part of Sights Unseen, a project which provides sensory photography training to blind and visually impaired people. For more details visit www.photovoice.org
