Bollards preventing disabled access to Newburgh canal path
A set of nuisance security bollards
are causing misery for the residents of Newburgh, Lancashire.
The Champion reported that disabled people are having trouble accessing a canal towpath after a number of bollards were put up outside a house in a bid to reduce the amount of cars parking in the vicinity.
Residents have complained to the parish council following a sign saying "no through traffic" being put up on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. One resident was said to be so angry that he delivered his protest letter to chairman Reg Porter in person to voice his disgust.
In a letter to the source, the residents wrote: "To make the matter worse, they placed a locked metal bollard in the centre of the towpath. This created a hazard for cyclists and walkers alike and it made the towpath unusable to anyone in a wheelchair."
The Leeds and Liverpool Canal is one of the longest in northern England stretching 127 miles over the Pennines.
