More street furniture near Preston Railway Station has been skittled.Advertisement
While the infamous Fishergate Bollard may no longer be in position it hasn’t stopped some of its cousins being wiped out.
A rail replacement bus came unstuck during Monday (30 July) evening when trying to get out of Butler Street.
Near the Old Vic pub the driver sent the plinth flying and became wedged onto the raised concrete area.
Even buses get stuck on the bollards, what waste of money these bollards!!! pic.twitter.com/p6DEFTgu09

Fishergate became a shared space in 2014 and saw the introduction of the Fishergate bollard and other street furniture at its junction with Butler Street and Corporation Street.
Since then the bollard has been sent tumbling dozens of times by drivers and costs Lancashire County Council around £300 each time it needs replacing.
