Security bollards to boost pedestrian safety in Lincolnshire

Security bollards to boost pedestrian safety in Lincolnshire
Security bollards at a crossing for cyclists and pedestrians in Lincolnshire are set to be improved to increase safety.

The bollards are part of a range of measures to be implemented by Lincolnshire County Council on the A57 at Odder.

A new footway and cycleway, extending from an existing trail in Lincolnshire, required a crossing facility on the road, but reports say motorists have been clipping the kerbs near the crossing.

To address the problem, the council will implement the bollards, a beacon light, extended linings and the whole carriageway will be widened.

"The new crossing was engineered within the existing physical constraints," said Les Outram, senior project leader.

"However, recent incidents suggest it is a challenge for some drivers."

Recently, a school in Staffordshire installed security bollards to protect its pupils after parents said cars were pulling up on the pavements outside when children were being dropped off and picked up.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800457965-ADNFCR
