Residents in the North-West town of Pwllheli are calling for the local authorities to implement enhanced safety measures for protecting pedestrians on three ‘dangerous’ roads, a news report in the local media has recently revealed.
During a recent town council meeting, residents raised the issue of pedestrian safety on three of the town’s narrowest streets. Concerns grew in 2011 when a lorry reversed into the side of a pub. A wagon, belonging to the Original Factory Shop, struck two bollards at the porch of the Penlan Fawr pub which caused serious damage.
More recently, a lorry became stuck when trying to turn down the high street from one of the narrower side-streets.
Cllr Evan John Hughes said he has been extremely concerned over the roads in the town for a number of years and believes a new one-way system should be in place on Stryd Moch.
He said: “I believe Stryd Moch is extremely dangerous, it gets extremely busy in the summer with traffic coming up and down it four ways.”
Installing restriction bollards can help make particular streets and roads safer for pedestrians, and this is specifically where Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles can put its extensive experience in the field to very good use.
We supply a high-end, reliable, yet quite affordable access restriction solution of this type as well, our Automatic Bollards being specifically designed to limit vehicle access to a specific location, and then be lowered rapidly when passage is authorised, typically within 2-3 seconds.
Our bollards are constructed out of concrete, stainless steel, aluminium or cast iron and are sturdy enough to be able to completely stop the majority of vehicles. Furthermore, they’re also quite resilient to atmospheric elements, and are housed inside compartments set into the road surface.
Additionally, an access control device, such as a smart card, can be combined with the automatic bollards, enabling quick and easy raising and lowering of the post. The Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles automatic bollards also sport an anti-intrusion locking system, as well as a failsafe in both retracted and extended position.
