Stupidly placed bollard

Reported in the Street Furniture category anonymously at 21:22, Thursday 2 May 2019

Sent to Bristol City Council 8 hours, 43 minutes later

There have been recent roadworks which have involved the installation of traffic bollards to aid pedestrians. The only thing is that the bollard juts out into the road by nearly two feet. I am a cyclist and everytime I cycle past the bollard and a car tries to overtake, it forces me into the bollard. This has already happened three times. It is an accident waiting to happen. When the winter comes, the bollard will not be visible and the badly placed bollard is going to cause a serious injury. Please confirm when this can be changed.

  • Can I have the decency of an update please? I was very nearly forced into the bollard this morning by a van and, as far as I can see, nothing has been investigated.
