Bollard showing a blue cycle symbol is missing

On Burwood Plan a bollard showing a blue cycle symbol is currently missing, as shown in the attached photo. The attached Google Streetview image shows the bollard in place. This is at the start of an eastbound cycle lane. Please replace the missing bollard.
Transport for London has confirmed to me that, despite TfL's Red Route markings extending into Burwood Place, Westminster City Council is the highway authority responsible for the maintenance of Burwood Place including the missing bollard - please see TfL's response to me below. -

Dear Mr Fee
Thank you for your feedback form of 25 March about the missing street sign on Burwood Place.
I appreciate the time you've taken to contact us. I understand from your request that you're referring to the blue sign in the following image: goo.gl/maps/PGrFL4bg2tBQ582r8. I would like to explain that we're responsible for maintenance and traffic management on roads that are part of the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN). These are also known as red routes and can be identified by the red lines along the sides of the roads. Most other public roads in London are maintained and managed by the local authorities.
In addition to these major roads, we will also enforce the parking rules on short stretches of minor roads as they approach the main routes.
The distinction is that we say we're the Highways Authority for the main roads and the Traffic Authority for the side roads. We control the parking, traffic management and road maintenance on Highways Authority roads. Our responsibility for Traffic Authority roads is to enforce the parking rules approaching the main junction.
Both Highways Authority roads and Traffic Authority roads have red lines for the benefit of drivers.
This means we will enforce the parking in Burwood Place at the junction of Edgware Road to keep the junction clear. However, the road signage in Burwood Place will be maintained by Westminster Council.
The council should be able to assist you further if you contact them on: City of Westminster Westminster City Hall 64 Victoria Street London SW1E 6QP 020 7641 6000 www.westminster.gov.uk email@example.com I trust the above information will be helpful to you. Thanks again for contacting us. If there is anything else we can help you with, please reply to this email. Alternatively, you can call us on 0343 222 1234 and we'll be happy to help you.
