Hundreds of new traffic bollards to be installed across the Isle of Wight

New traffic bollards are set to be deployed across the Isle of Wight as part of a comprehensive programme to replace nearly 400 of them across the entire island, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.

The new bollards installed by Island Roads use the latest in reflective technology so do not need to be illuminated. They are easy to maintain and do not cause light pollution.

Dave Haynes, Island Roads powered apparatus manager said:

“These new bollards meet the latest highways requirements but have the added benefit of being more economical to maintain and also do not contribute to light pollution which we know is an important issue for many people on the Island.

“The replacement programme is part of ongoing work to upgrade signage and street furniture across the network so residents can expect to see further improvement throughout 2017.”
