A Radlett mum is on the case of Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) as they’ve yet to replace a missing bollard on Watling Street.
Corinne Miller witnessed a ‘nasty’ accident at the location between Watling Street and Harper Lane last year, where a car struck an unlit, dirty bollard. Corinne campaigned to have the bollards in the road cleaned, which the council finally did in February – but a missing bollard has still not been replaced.
Corinne was dismayed to receive a response to her recent complaint, in which the council said the “necessary works have been carried out. We have now closed this report.”
Corinne told RadlettNews: “Whilst residents of Radlett are really appreciative of the effort that went into cleaning the bollards in February, this bollard, which has been missing for two years, is another accident waiting to happen.
“It was removed by Highways when they were about to trial traffic lights at Harper Lane, but now that may not be going ahead, and in the interim, we need that bollard there so that no one has an accident.”
HCC said: “We are aware of the missing bollard and an inspection has been carried out in the area.
“A cone has been put in place as a temporary measure and the job has been listed for a replacement bollard.
“This is classed as a ‘category 2’ job and therefore we currently have no timeframe for the installation.”
