New rising bollards installed in Kidlington’s High Street

product-bollardposts New rising bollards installed in Kidlington's High StreetA new rising bollard aimed at restricting High Street traffic in Kidlington has finally been installed and switched on in the last few days of December 2014, a new report in the local media has been able to reveal.

The access restriction measure has been installed in High Street near Barclays bank to enforce the two year-old pedestrianisation scheme.

The one-way section towards Oxford Road relied on drivers obeying a sign, limiting traffic between 10am to 4.30pm. This is frequently ignored.

The work was funded by the district council but required a sign-off from Oxfordshire County Council, which led to delays.

Kidlington Parish Council chairman David Betts – who has long-called for the bollard – said: “I’m very pleased that it’s there. I hope it helps trade. It has been a long time coming.”

Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles offers 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.
