Preston city centre’s controversial ‘bollards’ have taken another battering from drivers using Fishergate.Advertisement
A driver turning right into Corporation Street has ended up marooned on the ‘mini-roundabout’ on Sunday morning.
Penwortham town councillor Keith Martin snapped the picture showing the black car has crushed the bollard.
Damage appears to have been caused to the underside of the car.
The AA turned up on Sunday lunchtime to tow the car away.
In mid-January the plinth, road decoration, bollard, was seen lying in the middle of Fishergate after being knocked down.
Lancashire County Council says it has no plans to change the current road layout where Fishergate joins Corporation Street.
It is listed as a shared-space, where drivers are expected to give way to each other.
During the Christmas shopping period the county council had to introduce stop-go signs due to traffic congestion.
The new look Fishergate is being extended further up towards Church Street and Cheapside is to close for six weeks while roadworks take place.
