New bollards to be installed at Victoria Bar in York

Bollards are set to be installed to stop people driving through a gateway in the city walls after the previous barrier broke, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

The measures will be installed at Victoria Bar and will mean only residents, cyclists and emergency services will be able to drive through the archway.

Rising bollards were first installed in 2002 – and a council report says they have successfully stopped motorists from using the Bishophill area as a ‘rat run’.

The route could be shut completely – and trees planted, pavements widened and benches installed – meaning only cyclists and pedestrians could pass through.

This scheme would cost about £200,000, take a year to install and include excavation work around the ancient monument.

Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles – the go-to company for reliable and affordable car park barriers and restrictions solutions

We can provide reliable and affordable access restriction barriers for any number of car parks.

Our automatic barriers can work in any weather and are able to immediately recognise authorised personnel. They are supplied complete and ready to accept power and data connections. The barrier arms are available in several different lengths, in order to suit all road widths and car park sizes.

If you need a barrier arm which is longer than 3m we advise that you also install a support post, in order to keep your lifting system working at full capacity for as long as possible.

We can also offer a range of related extras, such as a folding arm mechanism, an impact release mechanism, and a barrier skirt which stops people being able to duck under the barrier to obtain entrance.

Many elements of our car park barriers can be produced in any classic RAL colour you wish for an extra fee. This is great if you are focused on brand continuity throughout your site, or simply want to make the barriers stand out clearly.
