Are you sure they painted the truck into the corner??
At double time for overtime they are looking at a very well paid wait till they can drive home.

Yes - they're in London, and those bollards are fixed.

...as you say, they'll make even more money digging up one of them so they can drive home!

I saw it immediately.
They set the posts with the van in side of them.
Classify this under Dumbass attack!

Obviously the pic is fake- it isn't raining.

Bah!

Offload all that cement, seal the doors, wait for high tide and a little (more) rain, and it should float right out.

The city of London doesn't have a monopoly on 'challenged' workers...a local up here in VT told me the following joke:

What's orange and sleeps 3?
VT state truck.

HA!

here's a pic of Mad River Glen in the Summer:

If you measure you can see the truck will fit between the posts. It looks like they spilled some cement and are trying to clean the sidewalk to remove the evidence of their sloppiness

I would have called for a crane. That way more people could get overtime.

If you do an "overlay" measurement, the van will just fit between the barriers, this is a bit +/- since the van is a bit back from the camera but it looks like it just may squeeze through.

Which also begs the question of why put up vehicle security barriers if, since a van could fit through, so could a small car?

That is a very good question for someone of your qualifications.

It's probably a matter of angles of access .... but what the heck?

OK, on the measurement thing, here's a very unscientific approach... count the paving stones.
In front of the van you can see the width of 4 paving stones (slight overhang to the left, slight gap to the right)
Then count the paving stones between the bollards - 3 then add about another half stone width to make up the distance to the bollards. A 4 wide van will not go through a 3.5 wide gap.

All very good, but the 4 paving stones in front are further away than the van edges you're projecting onto them. Have a look at the back door bottom ends and count 3.5

Now a friend of mine pointed this out. Perhaps one of the bollards is removable with a lock on it so that emergency vehicles can get in.













Damn, there it goes again, logic getting in the way of all the fun....:

Here in the United States, each government building must have a budget for the "fine arts. OK ... so it's welfare for artists but, that is another issue.

"Smart money" would declare the abandoned and landlocked van "art" and bill for the privilidge of having such a wonderful piece available for all to behold.
