Bollards on the menu for dangerous Northampton road junction

product-bollardposts Bollards on the menu for dangerous Northampton road junctionA dangerous road junction in Northampton will soon have bollards installed and yellow lines drawn up in order to improve its overall safety, a recent news report in the local media has been able to find.

The junction of Newport Road and Gladstone Road has seen a number of accidents and many near misses since multi-million pound improvements made to the area in 2011. As a result, local residents started a campaign to make the area safer and collated a petition calling for Northamptonshire County Council to act.

Following a meeting last week between residents, Councillor Eales, and officers from the county highways department a number of safety measures are to be implemented to make the junction safer, such as introduction of fixed bollards and double yellow lines to prevent obstructive parking on the corners, which limits vision at the junction.

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.
