Oxford City Council set to install bollards for preventing damage to grass and trees

product-bollardposts Oxford City Council set to install bollards for preventing damage to grass and treesOxford City Council has announced plans to install bollards and plastic mesh designed to prevent further damage to grass and street in the city’s Burchester Avenue, a news report in the local media has recently revealed.

According to the paper, the local authority plans to spend somewhere in between £60,000 and £70,000 for this scheme, which is planned as part of the council’s Great Estates project. The project aims to improve communal areas in the city’s estates.
A council member for Barton and Sandhills, where Burchester Avenue is located, said that parking on the verges had caused deep ruts in the grass. He also said trees had had to be removed after roots were damaged by drivers using the road edges, so installing specific measures aimed at discouraging drivers from illegal parking should rectify this situation.
The Static Bollards supplied by Carpark Barriers Gates & Turnstiles are equally suitable for both ground or surface mount, are highly flexible in most situations and are available in both cast iron and wood versions, which means that customer will be able to choose either strength or cosmetic appearance, depending on the specific circumstances within which the bollard is set to be mounted.
From simple light weight timber bollards for demarcation purposes, separating pedestrians from traffic or for protecting vulnerable points like corners of buildings that could be accidentally hit by vehicles, static bollards are highly versatile and provide a genuine deterrent.
The reliable and affordable Static Bollards from Carpark Barriers Gates & Turnstiles are available in any RAL colour as a special order at low prices, and if you’d like to find out more about them (or have any other query on this topic), then our dedicated product team can answer any question you might have.
