Down it goes again.

The new bollard at the corner of Market Street & Teme Street has been felled for a third time.  This time it was hit by a John Deere tractor & trailer combo.  Of course the bollard is there to protect the pavement from vehicle encroachment, so it could be said that it's installation is justified.
It must be a concern that the road layout is such that vehicles are so regularly hitting it.

On the opposite pavement, the planned bollards have not been installed, and cars and other vehicles are regularly running over the area that would have traditionally been the pavement.  It can only be a matter of time before someone is hit.  With clear evidence of constant encroachment then surely WCC would be culpable as the designers of this poorly delivered plan.

Luckily though, they have painted an orange dot on the base of the bollard to tell the workforce it needs repairing...
