It’s become one of the most well-known pieces of concrete in Preston – on a par with the divisive Bus Station.Advertisement
Fishergate Bollard has been sent tumbling a number of times and it’s a costly event.
But not as much as you thought it would for Lancashire County Council to keep replacing the plinths.
Ian Jaeger, a Blog Preston reader, submitted a Freedom of Information request to the county council.
He asked for how much it had cost to replace the bollards.
A statement from the county council said: “The cost to the County Council to replace the Fishergate bollards as a result of them being knocked over or smashed is £349.87 per event.
“As of 16 May 2017, four separate incidents have been recorded which would give a total cost to the County Council of £1399.48.”
A spokesman for the county council, when asked about the current Fishergate layout, said: “The changes on Fishergate, including the bus lanes, are being reviewed and a report is due to be considered at the Cabinet meeting in July.”
