Road signs betray poor management

China Daily | Updated: 2017-07-17 07:31

THE NAME SIGNS ON A ROAD were removed on Thursday four years after a 27-year-old graduate of China Central Academy of Fine Arts found the road had no name signs and put up ones bearing his name. commented on Friday:

The "misnamed" road did not come to light until recently when the 27-year-old college graduate presented it as his graduation project. The real irony is that over the past four years residents in the neighborhood and even navigation and location-based services such as Baidu Maps, even the lamppost managers, called the road after the name of the student.

Unsurprisingly the student will be held accountable for his "mischief", because it takes the authorization of relevant authorities to name a road and the supposedly unnamed road actually has a name. One of the neighborhood committee staff said it is registered as Baiziwan South No 1 Road, but road signs bearing this name had never been put up.
