Bollards for Bath

Bollards feature big in an email l have received from Michael Noakes. He writes:

“My slogan ‘Bollards for Bath’ may remind you of an unsavoury and crude political slogan in relation to Brexit but mine is polite!

You recently wrote about the hoped for repairs to the fountain in Laura Place and included a photograph (? Edwardian) showing bollards surrounding and protecting the fountain so why not reinstate them to prevent collisions by vehicles.

Coincidentally this week’s edition of Autocar (yes I confess I like cars!) shows an excellent idea for locating EV chargers in bollards (see attached photograph from the magazine).

Obviously this combination would not be suitable where parking is not possible but, further to my recent email about the proposed security zone, I would have thought there would be several locations where such a combination can be used in Bath also offering the function of protection to pedestrians.”

Over to you folks.
