New protective bollards have been deployed on a popular Ulverston road to stop lorries and delivery vans parking on pavements, causing widespread damage, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Pavements and flagstones in King Street have been affected by HGVs parking on them. The town councillors have arranged for new blue bollards to be placed to prevent heavy lorries breaking the flags and kerbstones.
Councillor Colin Pickthall, a member of Ulverston Town Council, is quoted as saying: “The bollards have gone in first so that is a good thing. The pavements have not been repaired yet.
“If we replaced the pavements first, they would get destroyed by the time we install the bollards, so it would have been a pointless task.
“Our next aim is to repair the flagstones that have been destroyed by lorries.”
