Security bollards have gone up to stop dangerous drivers using a footpath in East Grinstead.

According to, motorists have been driving over the path – regularly used by pedestrians – in order to exit a car park in the town.

Concerned residents even put up scaffolding at the end of the road to prevent the motorists.

But now the security bollards have been installed, thanks to funding from West Sussex County Council.

The Town Ward Neighbourhood Panel applied for the cash.

"I am delighted these bollards are now in place, it lifts the appearance of Chequer Road and the car park," panel chairman Carol Lewis told the news provider.

This month, it was reported that security bollards have been proposed as part of a regeneration project for Barry, in Wales.

With work due to start next month, a range of improvements, including CCTV, road paving, new street lighting and drainage work are all set to take place.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800412433-ADNFCR
